Pineapple Pound Cake

This pound cake is wonderful.Very moist and tender. The pineapple sauce you drizzle over the top really makes it pop with flavor. I have made this cake numerous times in the past, and always gets raves. I always add some coconut to the top also. I have also garnished with marachino cherries to give it some pop of color. Decorate how ever you prefer, or not at all...it's delicious just as is.
