Pineapple and Pecan Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

The cake was super bland. I had a feeling it would be so I added about 2 tbsp butter, and 1/4 c brown sugar to the pecans to make a caramel like coating on the nuts, then sprinkled them on top of the cake and half mixed them in before baking. The texture was OK, nice an dense like a carrot cake. Add cinnamon and vanilla and I think it would be good. I also added an extra 4 oz cream cheese, and cup of pwdr sugar to the frosting. I'm glad I did, the extra cream cheese frosting made up for the bland cake!

This is a good cake, but there's another recipe on this site that I prefer for pineapple and pecans. Two cups of sugar for the cake seemed excessive to me, so I cut it to one, and that was more than enough sweetness for us. I checked the cake at 30 minutes, it was already very brown and slightly overcooked, so watch your time. Although the cream cheese frosting is tasty, the one thing that I didn't like is that it just never really set or hardened at all, stayed very gooey.

GOOD MOIST CAKE. ONE CUP SUGAR IS SWEET ENOUGH. NO NEED FOR ICING. MAYBE SPRINKLE OF POWDERED SUGAR.
