Absolutely wonderful! The only problem I had with this cake was the whipped cream frosting kept running down the sides as quickly as I could put it on. I had to immediately put it in the freezer to set it. Any suggestions for this?

Make sure you COOL the cake in refrigerator before putting the cool whip topping on it! I make this in a 9x13 pan and bake for about 40 minutes..testing with a toothpick. You can make the cake one or two days ahead and make the topping just before you need it. The covered cake pan makes for easier traveling to potlucks or work..everyone LOVES this cake. We also know it as Pineapple Dream Cake.

I have made this cake several times, its a super moist cake with that light not too sweet taste. Everytime I make it everyone comes back for second helpings. I usually just use a 9x11 pan instead of 3 8" pans and 8oz of cool whip. It's easier too!
