Susan J's notes for this recipe:
*My Dad (Edward Kielpikowski) loved to make this cake for company, potlucks, and for just general eating. He always said it was easy to remember because it took 2 of everything. That is almost true with the exception of salt and nuts - their measurement is 1/2 and the can of pineapple, but it was a 20 oz can. :) Most of the time my parents served this without the rich frosting as that made it deadly - just kidding, but it is certainly "rich" enough without it... LOL This recipe came from my Mom's Aunt Estelle (Melton) .

Sweet, nutty and delightfully moist. I would be proud to serve this at ANY church function... or any time whatsoever!
