This cake is so good. I like mine warm with a scoop of ice cream.

If you like pound cake, you're going to love this light pineapple brown sugar pound cake. We loved the sweet and tartness from the pineapples. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and it's a lovely dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
