What a cake! There are tons of pineapple cakes and each is quite different. Year ago, I had a request for this cake. But the requestor only gave me some minimalist comments about the essential cake elements i.e. the cake feataures pineapple and a condensed milk topping that is poured over the warm cake as it comes out of the oven. Based on those brief notes, I created a vintage pineapple cake that is great hot, warm or cold and is an old school recipe that is so darn good, it's timeless. You also have a choice of putting on the brown sugar and nuts before it is baked or in the batter.
