This cake has a brilliant mix of flavours and textures - the fluffiness of cake, the crunchiness of meringue and the sweetness of the pineapple filling.
I made this cake for years with a recipe on the back of a cake box. I lost the recipe and it's not on the cake box any more. I was thrilled to find it here. Easy to goof on but it is so delicious, it's worth the care it takes to get it right. And it is beautiful. Something special happens to the cake baked with the meringue on top even though there are no whites used in the cake. - 20 Jul 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Excellent "grown-up" cake! Kids didn't care for it, but adults all loved the cool, creamy filling and interesting blend of crunchy nuts and meringue and soft cake. Thanks! - 21 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this cake for a new daughter-in-law for her birthday. She is a pinapple lover. Today she asked me to make it for her again. It is good, and I'm not a pinapple lover. Try it, it's different. - 20 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
