I love this cake.......I have been making it for years, I know I got the recipe from one of my TOH cookbooks, (I have MANY).......it is wonderful on a hot summer day! The citrus taste is so cooling. FYI, I always make it in a 13X9 pan.

This was delicious and so easy to make. Everyone loved how fruity and light it was. I will definitely be making it again. I think I'll try it with mango next time!

This recipe is a favorite of mine now. My daughter made it for a family gathering and I love it. She made it in a 9 X 13 pan and added sliced almonds to the top and maraschino cherries down the middle. Either way it is moist and tasty with a light yummy frosting!

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!
