made this cake, tried it in a sheet pan had to cook for about an hour. frosting is way too sweet will cut powdered suger in half next time actual cake is delish. - 13 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I substituted sunflower seeds for the recommended nuts, and didn't regret it. I used 2 eggs and appropriate amount of applesauce, and discovered that the 5 eggs listed would have been better. For the drizzle/frosting, I had too much left over even though I didn't use the butter at all, but used 8oz cream cheese instead of 3oz. I woudl recommend PRESSING the juice out of the crushed pineapple, to thicken the drizzle up. - 23 May 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
