    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.  -  01 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  19 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is really good,however a bit too sweet, next I might reduce in sugar.  -  29 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
