This cake has a lot of promise, but it's not a "pineapple cake." It's a cake where pineapple acts just like applesauce, replacing oil with sweet fruit pulp to make a healthier treat. To call it a pineapple cake is to raise the taste expectations to a level it can't meet.
Though bland and sweet, this dense, moist cake is the perfect base for a coffee cake. All it needs is some zest. The next time I bake it, I'll add cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and a pinch of salt. I'll top it with a crumb blend of brown sugar, cinnamon, flour and butter. I think it will turn out 4-star tasty as well as 5-star easy.
