This was SO moist, I couldn't believe it! My husband went nuts (ha). Here are the errors I made and my overally thoughts: I did add pineapple and my husband loved it. I, on the other hand would have really preferred this recipe as-is. If you do add the pineapple, you may need to extend the cook time 10-15 mins...or maybe it was just my oven OR the fact that I used a ceramic pan. I did not turn the cake out to cool but left it in the pan and piled the frosting high. With regards to the frosting...I added about two table spoons of melted white chocolate and two table spoons of heavy cream while I was whipping. I got this from another recipe on this sight. It also called for orange extract, which once again, my husband loved but I would omit next time. I did not put the nuts in the frosting. My final thoughts about THIS recipe (forget all my own alterations), It is absolutely a keeper. I do think that I would reduce down the sugar in the cake, it was a little sweet for my taste, maybe by about a half a cup. I know some people swapped the white sugar and used brown (at least partially) I don't think I'll do that, I liked the flavor without the molasis punch that brown sugar delivers. Also, I don't think I'll ever put nuts in my frosting. I love a good, smooth, frosting.
