"This wonderful cake starts with a cake mix to which you add pineapple and pecans. It is very moist, even better the second day."

This cake is delicious. I baked it in a 9 x 13" pan so I didn't have a problem with it falling apart as other bakers had.
I made this recipe as written, but with only 2 layers; and while the flavor was VERY GOOD, the cake absolutely fell apart and crumbled when we tried to slice it. Maybe others' suggestions of adding an extra egg would have helped -not sure.
I loved this cake, and my family did too. The first time followed the recipe as it was on the computer, but the second time i added a extra egg, it made it thicker and even more moist. I LOVE this cake it is the BEST!
This cake went over very well with my family. I made the three layers as suggested and they were very thin..I might make only two next time. I added an extra egg to the mix and used a store bought cream cheese frosting then added flaked coconut to finish off the outside. My husband said it was one of the best cakes he's had and my father in law, who loves fruity cakes, thought it was great. Will definitely make this one again.
A great cake! For convenience, I use a 9x13" rectangular pan, (still the same number of servings). If you DO want to be "elegant" use the 1, or 2, layer pans, suggested. But, however you bake it -- it tastes great!
This is a great recipe. I add marichino cherries and some madarin oranges to it too. I decorate cakes as a hobby and this is one of my most request cakes.
WOW! This is a wonderful cake, thanks Linda for my all-time favorite cake.
With any cake mix, I use not only an extra egg, but a package of instant pudding. This adds flavor and moisture. As I like to go "fresh" as much as possible I use fresh pineapple. This turned out super.
