    I add a bit of the pineapple juice to my batter. And I cook it in a large cast iron skillet instead of a cake pan Otherwise this looks like the recipe I use basically. and yes it is a knockout homerun every time.

    Just had a piece of this beauty and it tasted as good as it looks... I followed recipe exactly except I used golden (caster) sugar for the cake and it seemed to do the trick! Didn't have a mixer so had to mix the OLD fashioned way, by hand. Beautiful golden color and moist dense cake. YUMMY!

    This cake turned out beautifully...it was soft and fluffy and looked gorgeous. The only thing I felt was it was a lil too sweet.....but its ok to sin once in a while.

    This receipe looks great and i'm going to try it for the holidays! Does anyone know if it tastes too much like Caramel? Does that take away the flavor? I will just have to try it but it looks mouth watering!

    Thanks!
