Nancy's Story

My Mom's been gone for some time now and this is one of the recipes she gave me after I tried it and loved it. Funny how little things like recipes bring back memories and times spent together...enjoy!


1 1/2 c
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
2 c
crushed pineapple (one 15 oz can, do not drain)
1/3 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
walnuts (chopped or cut up halves)
1 c
canned milk (evaporated)
1 stick
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix together first 4 ingredients (sugar, flour, soda & salt.)
Then add in eggs and crushed pineapple. Mix with spoon until all moistened.
Pour into a 9x13" greased pan.
Sprinkle 1/3 cup brown sugar and the walnuts over the cake mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. ( no need to cover)
Boil 1 cup canned milk with 1 stick of margarine and 1 teaspoon vanilla. (just to boil and take off heat)
Pour the milk mixture over the warm cake.
Cut into squares and serve with ice cream and/or whipped cream. Keep pan covered so it doesn't dry out.

    Thanks Debbie, no, it's a teaspoon. I went in and edited it correctly. Just when you think it's all good to go, I must be tired but do appreciate you catching it so early.
