    A. Jo's Note:

    I'm not sure where this recipe originated, but it is a family favorite. Don't let the "healthy name" keep you from trying it -- it's delicious...and it freezes well, too! We like it with cream cheese frosting or a light dusting of powdered sugar. I haven't timed this exactly, so the prep and cooking times are approximate.

      Yum! This cake is moist and full of flavor. I reduced the oil to a half a cup and added a bit more pineapple juice for more moisture and the cake came out great. It doesn't taste "healthy" at all. Thanks, A.Jo.
