Pineapple Crumb Cake

Jo Dee


My son requested a pineapple cake for his birthday and with a sick younger child in the house I had to use what I had on hand (or risk sending the husband to the store with a list :-). While I love to bake from scratch, I also love the ease and versatility of boxed cake mixes.
