Oddly enough, it was another Catherine who gave me this recipe more than 30 years ago…she called it “Chop Suey Cake,” she guessed because it’s so speedy, she said. The recipe is not misprinted–there is no oil or fat in the cake, so do not feel compelled to add it. For those who insist a cake requires fat, think of angel food cakes! This is a delicious cake, very moist, full of pineapple flavor. “My” Catherine’s recipe also included a cup of chopped nuts. Thanks, Catherine, for posting this bit of nostalgia.
This cake was AWESOME. Incredibly moist and great flavor. A previous review stated a cake needs oil, which I agree, so I added 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and it turned out great. I reserved a small portion of the crushed pineapples and added it to the frosting along with coconut flakes. Everything was perfect. My family and Fiance loved it. I will make this cake again…
This cake is fabulous!!! I can’t comment on the cream cheese frosting, as I made my own, but the cake turned out wonderful. All I had was a can of sliced pineapple rings, so I crushed them by hand and drained enough juice so it was the consistancy of a can of crushed. The cake doesn’t rise as much as other cakes but it looks and tastes fine, and as for those who said it was hard you must have overcooked it – this recipe yielded a very nice, moist cake that would be fine even without frosting. Thanks!
This cake is super-yummy and DOESN’T need oil or butter! It has a great chewy & moist texture and there is plenty of fat in the frosting! I cut back on the sugar by 1/4 of a cup and they did not seem too sweet – just right. These are just like they say…very easy & fast to make -tasted a little like my carrot cake recipe. I sprinkled 1/2 cup chopped pecans on top of the frosting also. Thanks! UPDATE: Do keep this in the fridge if it is not eaten right away. It tastes yummy cold too!
VERY easy recipe to follow and make. This would be a good one for the kids to make with mom or dad. Two things I would suggest. Depending on your oven start watching the cake at about 30 minutes of baking. Mine was pretty golden on the top but when I inserted a tooth pic it was raw in the middle. I popped it back in for another 10 minutes and it was VERY golden but cooked in the middle. So don’t be afraid to keep it in a little longer. The other thing is if you plan to frost it the recipe for the frosting does not make that much. So if you like a nice layer of frosting I’d say double it. I used cream cheese, confectioners sugar and coconut flakes and it came out fabulous. You could also try cream cheese, marshmellow fluff and some crushed pinapple as a frosting too. Both are great! Oh and I also used 1 and 1/2 cups of white sugar rather than the 2 cups the recipe called for. Overall….This ones a keeper for sure!
