  1. This sounds really good, but we're not fans of pineapple. Would you adjust any measurements or cooking time if you omitted it, or replaced it with something like raisins? Thanks.

  2. I have never tried this but think if you replaced the pineapple with 3/4 C of applesauce it would keep the cake moist and delicious

  3. Do you think you could make this in 2 round pans, to make a layer cake?
