This is an old tried and true pineapple cake recipe that's been around for over 30 years--that's how long I've been making it anyway! What's so interesting about this cake is that it has no butter oil or shortening! It goes by many names but no matter what you call it it's moist delicious pineapple-y and mixes up in no time. I think I like my frosting better tho'...only 1/4 cup butter which I believe really gives it more of a cream cheese taste and 2 c. powdered sugar.
I have a recipe that is very similar to this one that I have been making for a long time. So I was tickled when I came across this one. It took me all of 3 minutes to put together. Just dump everything in one large bowl and mix together. Be sure to keep an eye on this as it tends to bake quickly. If it starts browning to much around the edges before the middle is set just lay a peice of foil on top until it's done. I didn't use the cream cheese icing because I didn't have any cream cheese. Out of desperation I found a birthday cake icing on this site and used it. I did find me another 5 star recipe so everything worked out for the best. Thanks Marie.
This cake was a great disappointment to me. I had guests and we all agreed that it wasn't worth making again. The only thing that even barely began to save it was the fact that the nuts added a bit of a crunch.I love cooking and take delight in trying out new recipes weekly. This one was definitely a disappointment.
I too have made this cake for over 30 years. It is so moist and yummy. I use black walnuts in my batter and black walnuts in the icing....just gives it a little more kick. I sometimes sprinkle a little coconut on top of the frosting.
