    I didn't even make the syrup cause I didn't have some of the ingredients, and this cake was AWESOME. VERY moist and VERY flavourful and SO simple. Nothing more than throwing ingredients in a bowl!  -  10 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Simple and delicious! I've made this cake for a luau party and for a company potluck and got rave reviews each time. I topped mine with canned whipped cream and sprinkled it with pecans for presentation.  -  30 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake was very good, and made even more delicious when I used the Cool Whip topping from the Mandarin Orange cake recipe from the site instead of the butter glaze. It added the extra pineapple flavor that some have said was missing. It is insanely easy to prepare, and comes out very moist. My SIL said it was her new favorite cake! I got rave reviews.  -  24 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
