This won a Blue Ribbon at a County Fair. Frost with cream cheese icing, the tangy frosting brings out the blend of fruits and nuts in the cake.

This is a great recipe... when I make it I substitute the oil for 1 1/2 cups of apple sauce... everything else stays the same. Its much less fattening and just as delicious!!

We love this cake. I have made it before and it turned out great this time too. I ran out of granulated sugar so subbed some turbinado sugar. I also baked this in a 10" x 15" cake pan for about 30 minutes. I used buttercream frosting because I didn't have any cream cheese. I think this cake would be fine without any frosting if you want to save time and calories. This easily mixes up by hand. No need to break out the Kitchenaid.

Good recipe, but I found that the batter was thin to accommodate three 9-inch layers. Next time will pour only two, reduce temp to 325 and cook appx 10 minutes longer. I added 1/2 cup coconut, which I will increase to 3/4 cup next time. I also used more pineapple and banana than called for, which was very good.
