This was my grandmother's favorite recipe, made only for special occasions. I can remember watching her cook. She never measured anything and her food was always great, but I think she had to be a little more exact with this cake. -Carol Forbes, Norwalk, Connecticut

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 331 calories, 21 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 119 mg cholesterol, 191 mg sodium, 32 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Spread batter over the bottom of two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans (batter will be about 1/4 in. thick); set aside.
  2. In another large bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread meringue evenly over batter; sprinkle with walnuts.
  3. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool in pans for 5 minutes; loosen edges of cakes from pans with a knife. Using two large spatulas, carefully remove cakes from pans; cool completely, meringue side up, on wire racks.
  4. In a small bowl, beat cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Fold in pineapple. Transfer one cake layer to a serving plate, meringue side up. Carefully spread filling over meringue; top with the remaining cake layer. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 10-12 servings.
