I was given this about 20 years ago, baked by a cookery teacher friend. I've never dared change it, it's been such an absolute family favourite, always gorgeous, never lets you down. We particularly love the frosting, which uses a little brown sugar instead of icing sugar, giving a more subtle flavour. Some like the pineapple pieces and nuts, others don't: they affect texture rather than taste so use as preferred.
