1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapples, with juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, mix the ingredients together and bake – it’s that simple.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl before adding the eggs and pineapple.
Fill the pan with the batter, then spread a layer of the nuts and brown sugar evenly.
A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean after 40 to 45 minutes of baking.
The evaporated milk, sugar, and butter should come to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat while the cake is baking.
Pour over hot cake after removing from heat, and stir in vanilla extract.
Let the cake cool so it absorbs icing, then slice.
