First, I wasn't baking for a ton of people, so I halved the recipe and had just enough for 2 dozen small cupcakes, which i baked at 350 for about 18 -22 minutes. Now, I hate an oily cake, so i substituted a little more than half the oil for applesauce (a tiny bit less than 1/4 cup oil to a full 1/4 cup applesauce) like some of the other reviewers here and it still came out perfectly moist. I also didn't completely drain my pineapple, but rather added just a couple splashes of the juice the pineapple was packed in. Finally, I topped my little cupcakes off with Cream Cheese Frosting II and garnished with walnuts. The end result was AMAZING! My fiancee and his coworkers loved them! No doubt, those cupcakes deserve 5 stars, however this recipe doesn't with all that oil- it's unnecessary. If I had followed this recipe exactly, I think my cupcakes would have had a very tragic and soggy outcome.
