Preacher Cake

My Dad (Edward Kielpikowski) loved to make this cake for company, potlucks, and for just general eating. He always said it was easy to remember because it took 2 of everything. That is almost true with the exception of salt and nuts - their measurement is 1/2 and the can of pineapple, but it was a 20 oz can. :) Most of the time my parents served this without the rich frosting as that made it deadly - just kidding, but it is certainly "rich" enough without it... LOL. This recipe came from my Mom's Aunt Estelle (Melton).

Dense and sponge-like, this simple cake is sweet, nutty, and delightfully moist. With pineapple being the predominant flavor of the cake, it almost has a tropical feeling. It's not overly sweet so the rich cream cheese frosting is the perfect contrast and complement to the pineapple cake. The nuts are optional but we loved the nuttiness and crunch they add to the cake and frosting. A delicious and easy cake that can be quickly made for any occasion.
