PINEAPPLE CAKE w/ BOILED COCONUT ICING

Today I am sharing this recipe that Janice served at this month's Tasty Bunch gathering.  We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Smokehouse and then went to their house for dessert.  She had planned to make her pineapple cake that she has made for years, but she saw this recipe.  Unlike me, she tried the recipe earlier in the week to make sure it was going to be good.  (I guess I'm more of a dare-devil than she is....I just make it and hope it tastes good.)

Anyway Leon, her husband, really liked it. He told me the day before that I wouldn't be able to just eat one serving.  It was really that good.  

She did decide to make the boiled icing that she makes with her other recipe.
