Such an easy recipe and I received many rave reviews. I made the cake one night ahead and let sit at room temperature until it was time to serve - I did serve it with whipped cream and it did add the extra oomph! to polish the dessert off. It tastes like a moist yellow cake with hints of pineaple here and there - if you wanted to go for an even more tropical taste, you could add add another can of pineapple to the batter - but be sure to drain well!
