"I often prepare this moist golden cake at Easter, but it's wonderful just about any time of year," relates Linda Sakal of Biloxi, Mississippi. Pineapple frosting provides the fast finishing touch.

My mother has been making this classic dessert for years. The first time I followed the recipe exactly as written. The second time I prepared it according the measurements of my mom's recipe. Smaller can of pineapple and it is not drained. Also, used only one tub of cool whip. Both are great but you will get more of the delightful frosting following ToH version. Highly recomend!

This cake is scrumptious!! It's very light with just the right moistness, and so easy to put together. The whipped topping is perfect--not too sweet. With Double Vanilla ice cream on the side, over-the-top yummy! It would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower or an elegant luncheon.
