Mary's Fluffy Zucchini Cake With Pineapple & Nuts

When I was a new bride, nearly 30 years ago, I was blessed to buy a home next to a retired couple who completely "adopted" me as their own. Mary was an expert home cook with an even more impressive garden. Since I had no family within hundreds of miles, and her only daughter had long since moved away, we became instant friends. She taught me nearly everything I know about cooking, canning, gardening and life. This is one of the first recipes that she taught me, attached to a bag of fresh zucchini from her garden. Remembering her kindness, I pass her lessons along today. She would love that.
