I give the recipe itself 3 stars, but my version gets 5 stars. I increased the butter in the mix to 3 sticks instead of one. I used butter flavored shortening. Along with the vanilla extract I put a tablespoon of pineapple extract. I increased the sugar to 3 cups instead of 1 1/2 and I used a cup of evarporated milk. Read More

I'm sorry but I thought this cake was rather dry. It also wasn't very sweet nor could you taste the pineapple in it very much. The only pineapple you could taste was in the glaze that went on top. I will not make it again. Read More

This is a wonderful pineapple pound cake! I did not have any problems with it. I did not have a tube pan so I used more of a loaf pan. It is similar to what a friend used to make for us. I liked this version very much too. We froze the second loaf for later. Read More

This cake is easy to make and not just a plain pound cake. The glaze is very tasty. Makes a large cake that goes a long ways. Read More

I found this recipe and I couldn't wait to try it...I finally baked this cake and I was not happy with the results. I feel like I wasted 2 sticks of butter and 6 eggs!! I could not taste the pineapple in the cake and I baked it for a little over an hour. I will not bake this cake again. It was dry and not very tasty. My apologies go out to the person who admitted this one. Read More

This was not one of my favorite recipes. You can't taste the pinapple in the cake only in the glaze. The prep. was no trouble and it came out perfectly in a bundt pan but probably would just make a plain pound cake next time and serve with the glaze on the side. Read More
