Test Kitchen Tips
This top-rated user recipe was tested in our test kitchen. Here are some tips from recipe tester Nicole Hopper:

Let the cake cool completely before icing, or your frosting could melt.
Make sure you use a 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice. Avoid using pineapple in syrup or fresh pineapple.
This is best served as a sheet cake and sliced and served from the baking dish. I would not recommend this recipe for layer cakes.
How to Store Pineapple Cake
Store the cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days. Since it has a cream cheese frosting, you shouldn’t leave it at room temperature for more than two hours.
