If the cake turned out a disaster, perhaps you made a mistake. Cooking is chemistry and you have to follow directions to a tee. Really cream that butter and sugar, and beat well between additions. The batter fluffs up like a meringe, so don't expect cake-mix consistency.
I did do some modifications. (I found the cake a bit DRY) Here's what I recommend:
(1) Yes, REDUCE the topping butter to 1/4 cup. Cube it, put it in the pan, and put the pan in the oven while it's preheating. Save the step. Sprinkle with brown sugar and combine with fork.
(2)Really pile on that pineapple: be generous in the size of your cubes because they'll shrink!! Don't dry the pineapple, let those juices soak into the batter.
(3) Cut the flour 1/4 cup, and reduce baking time by 5-7 minutes.
This is a great recipe! So glad I found it. It will become a perineal favorite in this home. Thanks!
