Excellent but the printed recipe is a little too moist. I made it to a T the first time, and the cake was good but a bit oily. The 2nd time, as suggested by others, I did 2/3 cup each of oil and applesauce, and it was so moist and wet, like a pudiing cake. The pineapple adds a lot of moisture, so decreasing the oil is ok. So ever since, I've used 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup applesauce. Whatever you decide to use (oil, applesauce)just decrease the overall amount to 1 cup. I bake it at 350 degrees (instead of 325) in two 9" cake pans for exactly 30 min. Turned out perfect. I use ALL light brown sugar. Drain/squeeze out all of the pineapple juice before adding to the batter. (8 oz. pineapple = 1 cup) Will definitely make again. Super moist! (4 star original recipe, 5 star with very slight change) Will be my master recipe. Use Cream Cheese Frosting II for a layer cake. If you like heavy frosting, you might need to use 3 packages of cream cheese.
