A pink cake with pineapple and nuts. This is a traditional favorite. It's very pretty too! It tastes great with cream cheese icing and coconut sprinkled on the top.

I used toasted pecans,& added some chopped marachino cherries to cake. Lightened cream cheese icing with cherry juice. It was a GREAT HIT with all. Had many requests for recipe.

I did not like this recipe at all. I used a cherry chip cake mix, and even though the pinapple juice did make the cake moist, I did not like the taste of the pinapple chuncks in the cake. I felt that it just did not go well. I also found this cake to be rather dry, and had a lot of trouble getting it out of the cake pans. The cake ripped while trying to remove from both cake pans. I notice that this cake receipe does not call for any oil, I think that had something to do with it. Now I see why most cake recipies call for at least a cup of oil. I also tried making a cherry cream cheese frosting by mixing cherry kool-aid with butter, cream cheese and icing sugar. Even though the cherry kool-aid gave the icing a nice red cherry colour, it did not taste good at all. I won't try using kool-aid in a frosting receipe again. I ended up throwing out 3/4 of the cake.
