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! The Test Kitchen
