semisweet chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained
The recipe came out but my family politely declined a second bite.
This is an unusual but very tasty cake. I recommend it.
I used fresh pineapple - maybe too much because the top layer came out too gooey even though the bottom was firm (or perhaps it needed an extra 5 minutes in the oven). My kids mostly played with it. I sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top about 15 minutes before it was done to garnish the top. Pretty but a bit bland - I think it needs more dense pineapple AND chocolate flavor to be a big hit. Maybe butter instead of shortening? Maybe a teaspoon of lemon juice or some zest in the pineapple 1/2?
