My co-workers gave me five stars! One said that it was absolutely delicious and another said that they were fighting over it. She loved how moist it was. I did make a few changes, based on what other reviewers said. Instead of vegetable oil, I used 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup of applesauce (so the cake was moist and had a nice butter taste). I used 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar, which turned out just sweet enough. I messed up by buying diced pineapple, but crushed pineapple would have been better in providing a more even texture. Definitely squeeze out the excess pineapple juice! I also added a small package of raisins, which I soaked in water for about 5 minutes (maybe next time I will try soaking in the leftover pineapple juice). To the dry mixture, I had also grated a dusting of nutmeg. Also added 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla. For frosting, I combined one 8-ounce cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter (both room-temp) with 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Thanks so much to Koribear and other reviewers for the recipe!
