This cake is incredibly moist and dense, which makes it ideal for chilling and cutting up ahead of time to serve as bars at social events. Mom is always asked for this recipe. —Krista Smith Kliebenstein, Broomfield, Colorado

I got great feedback when I made this for a bingo gathering. One question, tho. Do you add the pineapple with the juice or do you drain the pineapple?

One of our customer made us this cake and we all thought it was so good. I had to have the receipe and I have made it twice in the last two weeks for different events and I plan to make another one this week. I didn't put the walnuts in it or the coconut on top. Next time I will try it that way.
