  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Spread pecans onto a baking sheet; spray pecans with cooking spray.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until pecans are fragrant and toasted, about 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk flour, white sugar, and baking soda together in a bowl. Stir pineapple and its juice and eggs into flour mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in toasted pecans. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  6. Beat confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until icing is smooth. Frost the cooled cake using all the icing.

This is a good cake, but there's another recipe on this site that I prefer for pineapple and pecans. Two cups of sugar for the cake seemed excessive to me, so I cut it to one, and that was more...

Been using this recipe for years.... excellent !!!! so moist and tasty... I also add coconut ..however, have never toasted pecans first...must try that next time...

The cake was super bland. I had a feeling it would be so I added about 2 tbsp butter, and 1/4 c brown sugar to the pecans to make a caramel like coating on the nuts, then sprinkled them on top ...

i just baked today this recipe and is amazed that cake with no fats/oil can taste so nice too! But I also used 1 cup of sugar only after reading the reviews...! Nice & thanks! :)

GOOD MOIST CAKE. ONE CUP SUGAR IS SWEET ENOUGH. NO NEED FOR ICING. MAYBE SPRINKLE OF POWDERED SUGAR.
