Cassie's notes for this recipe:
I love one bowl recipes, and this one is no exception.


You spread the cream cheese frosting over it while it’s still hot, so the frosting melts and seeps into the cake, making it a little gooey and dense.

This cake was very good and moist... we see why you thought it was Blue Ribbon worthy.  I think it's the pineapple that made this so moist!

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Mix all of the cake ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into a greased 9X13 inch pan and bake at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes (until top is golden brown).
