This is a wonderful, moist cake that I get many requests for and has been a hit every time and everywhere I have served it. Just make sure that pineapple is drained completely before adding it to filling mixture and that cakes are cooled completely before filling to avoid soggy cake.

*Be sure to add cooling time for cake layers and, some chill time to finished cake, to the alloted prep and bake times for a true measure of time required.*
