Yum! This is a warm, gooey, old-fashioned cake everyone will love. Betty comes from the heart of Cajun country where I bet this cake is found on every potluck dessert table. The cake itself is easy to make, spongy, and has bits of pineapple in every bite. The icing is thick, sugary and full of coconut and pecans. It's a tad time consuming, but pure yumminess! When it cools, it becomes harder and tastes almost like a praline. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
