    Absolutely delicious! I did it in a 13 x 9 pan as I didn't have the larger pan. Baked about 6 minutes longer. Added just a tad more sugar to the cake. Even adding the sugar didn't make the cake overly sweet. The frosting is perfect! I'll be making this again and again. Thank you!!

    I have baked this cake many times. Very, very good. Easy to put together. Always get wonderful comments and it's not expensive to make. Wonderful option for big gatherings.

    Love this cake, easy to make. My version used a 9x13 pan and cooking times a little different, but the same ingredients. Years ago a coworker made this cake for us...delicious. She called it BEST cake. I've made this a lot, however I think the best part is the frosting.

    Unbelievable - how bad can cake be! This has to be the worst cake I've ever made! While it was baking, my husband asked "what the heck is that smell?" It did not taste like pineapple - actually had no identifying taste at all. Such a waste of ingredients. I am discarding it all and chalk it up for "don't believe the hype" . I gave it one star because of the simplicity and nothing else! ??

    Everyone saying it doesn’t rise I use self rising flue works every time.

    We've had this recipe in the family for years. AWESOME cake. It isn't dry because the pineapple gives it moisture. If it didn't rise, you should check your baking soda.

    The cake and frosting both taste good. However, the cake was too thin for me - I like a thicker cake so baked it again using a 13x9x2 inch pan with better results (but it was still a thinner cake than I prefer). I also found that I needed to double the amount of nuts (to 1 cup) for sprinkling over the top of cake (it did not seem generous enough using just 1/2 cup). I sprinkled some toasted coconut on top of the cake too for added flavor and texture.

    The cake never rose. Since I had no time to remake anything else, I cut it up into "chewy pineapple bars". Everyone said it tasted good, but it didn't resemble anything like a cake.

    Super easy to make and tastes good. Perfect for a last minute dessert. I cheated and used ready-made cream cheese frosting.
