Considering the pineapple and zucchini, I thought this cake would be a little moister than it was. and I even added more pineapple (about 3/4 of a 22 oz can, drained). I also thought it needed a little more "spice". The recipe did not indicate what size pan to use or if it needed greased and floured. It fit nicely in a 9x13 which I did grease and flour and the baking time was perfect. I will make this again though, and will use a whole can of pineapple and a little more of the spices, maybe some allspice too? The cream cheese frosting was very good although I used Vanilla in place of the Lemon extract(not lemon crazy) and I made extra by 1/2 just because we love cream cheese frosting.
