    This is a wonderful moist cake. It's so rich and good. You can't eat just one bite. This is a four star cake.

    I make this same cake but instead of brown sugar in the frosting I put coconut. Yummy.....We call it Pineapple spoon cake because you can mix it in a bowl with a spoon and there's hardly any work. :))

    For the topping recipe the ingredient list says 1 stick butter(1/2 C) but in the directions it says to add 1 C butter which is the correct amount? And what do you call small can of milk how many oz please?
