This just goes to show that tradition can be improved upon. A little orange flavor makes the pineapple sing in this classically moist and flavorful cake.

    I decided to make this cake for a church potluck dinner as the recipe seemed easy to prepare. And it was. BUT, to me, this cake wasn't anything special. And very orange! At least the cake color went along with the season of the year...Autumn!

    OMG! Beyond ahmazing! I absolutly loved this recipe and the rest of my family enjoyed it as well. I tweeked the cake mix a bit by adding less than 1/4 of vegetable oil when it normaly called for 1/3 cup. I also substituted the 3 eggs it called for with the remaining juice from the pineapples. This recipe was oustanding and reminded me of my mother's cake she taught me how to make. I cannot wait to eat the leftover cake tmrw!

    I had no problems with the recipe. I did use sugar free jello and it worked just fine. I used a glass pan and after baking the required 40-45 minutes the cake slid right out of the pan. I will be making this again for family get togethers.
