"Here's a great cake that combines the fluffiness of yellow cake with the crunchiness of meringue and a pineapple-whipped cream filling." — Chas

I made this cake for years with a recipe on the back of a cake box. I lost the recipe and it's not on the cake box any more. I was thrilled to find it here. Easy to goof on but it is so delicious, it's worth the care it takes to get it right. And it is beautiful. Something special happens to the cake baked with the meringue on top even though there are no whites used in the cake.
Excellent "grown-up" cake! Kids didn't care for it, but adults all loved the cool, creamy filling and interesting blend of crunchy nuts and meringue and soft cake. Thanks!
I made this cake for a new daughter-in-law for her birthday. She is a pinapple lover. Today she asked me to make it for her again. It is good, and I'm not a pinapple lover. Try it, it's different.
This cake is so delicious. It's a keeper in my household.
Fabulous! I used a quart of strawberries instead of the pineapple and doubled the whipping cream.
Love this, but I use walnuts instead and leave out the rum!
I thought it was delicious. The meringue made the cake crunchy and sweet. Great recipe!
