Recipe by Kim D.

My Mom got this recipe from my Aunt Frances many years ago and it's always been a family favorite. When my Mom would ask me what kind of cake I wanted for my birthday, this was the one I requested! (Prep-time includes chilling time)

This is wonderful. I have been doing this cake for years, only I mix 1/2C sugar with the pineapple and simmer it while the cake is cooking and pour it on top of the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven and then let it cool before I spread the toppings on it. Thanks for the alternate way of doing this.
