Reviews for Makeover Pineapple Nut Cake
"i made it, and it's very goodddddddddddand so easy...i don't use sugar cause in méxico the canned pineapple has sugar...:)"
"I added a half cup of sugar sub and forgot the other 1/2 cup sugar and it was still excellent"
"You can make Powdered Sugar with Splenda, use the amount you would use of Splenda and add 2 tsps of corn starch in a blender. Blend for less than a minute and you will have powdered sugar. I got this idea from calling Splenda a few years ago. It really works. My husband and I are Diabetic."
"This is very good. Note: You can make Powdered Sugar with Splenda, use the amount you would use of Splenda and add 2 tsps of corn starch in a blender. Blend for less than a minutes and you will have powdered sugar. I got this idea from calling Splenda a few years ago. It really works."
"Actually if I were to be asked: "Did these reviews of this recipe help you?" I would have to say a resounding NO. Very confused mish mash of reviews. Guess I will find another recipe.
"I made it and husband and neighbor raved about it. Very tasty. I'll make it for Easter."
"Based upon other reviews for dryness, etc., I made certain to not overmix the ingredients, using only a wooden spoon to blend ingredients, not a mixer. Also to add moisture, I added a 1/2 cup mashed banana and 1/2 c. low fat yogurt (more nutrition as well). The cake was moist, altho it had a dense texture. Having a diabetic husband and friend, I skipped the frosting and used s.f. whipped topping instead. Will make again."
