Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

What am I missing? How much pineapple?? I don't see it in the ingredient list.

It says 1 can crushed and undrained

Hi there! It's the last ingredient on the list. 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained.

Wonderful old fashioned cake !

This looks like a combination of gooey cake and hummingbird cake. With all that sugar, butter, and pineapple, this has to be amazing! I love recipes with coconut, pecans, and pineapple. My only problem is I like it too much! I need to make this cake to take to work and then I will have to share.

This is a great with the coconut, pineapple, and pecans! I put mine in the frig because I like it cold! lol I toasted some coconut and sprinkled on the top.

I have not made this cake yet.How about adding a can of coconut pecan frosting to the mix ?

I prefer to crush my own graham crackers. How many sleeves of crackers is equivalent to a package. Can't wait to try this one!

Hi there! One 14.4-ounce box of graham crackers crushed is equivalent to one 13-1/2-ounce box graham cracker crumbs. Enjoy!

Thanks for all of the great recipes.

I remember this delicious cake being served at a local lunch counter at our ole Roses store when I was a child, I really loved it and have wanted the recipe. Thanks will be making it soon.

Could you leave the pineapple out?

Yes, you can. Enjoy!

OOOOHHH ITS SO GOOOOD!!! We love this cake... Roll Tide
