    Like rebekah1982, my cake mix split and once baked, was also stodgey. I used fresh pineapple but that didn't seem to make a difference. Unfortunately, I didn't like the taste which I think was down to the rum. I will not be trying this one again.  -  21 Jul 2013


    hmm, not sure if I did something wrong, but the cake is very stodgey. The mix split and I had to add more flour than the recipe said. It tastes nice, but doesn't look like the picture - which looks light and fluffy? I assume the weight of pineapple was drained weight? Not sure I'll be trying this again...  -  11 Oct 2012


    Don't give a recipe a bad review when you jack it up with your own substitutions!!! I have made this several times as written and they turn out great with requests for the recipe ...  -  09 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
