    I’ve never made a cake from scratch. Every thing was perfect and everyone loved it. The only improvement is when making the birds next just use parchment paper to mold it vs non stick wrap.

    i didn’t use this exact recipe, the one I used called for 1 cup of sugar and I only put 1/2 cup and it came out delicious. The perfect amount of sweetness even without any frosting. I made mine as a loaf cake with no frosting, YALL… it was so good.

    I’m allergic to pineapples what could I substitute for the pineapple so I could have a similar cake.

  11. sekereterra on April 9, 2021 at 11:38 pm

  12. Drenda Ellis on April 9, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Is it a big deal if I skip the pecans? I’d like to make it but My brother’s got a pretty serious nut allergy.

  16. Cynthia Lopez on April 9, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Can I change to cupcakes?

  25. mikefinney423 on April 9, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    It’s delicious. Very, very sweet. There’s 4 cups of sugar, total, in it with the icing! Even without icing its still awesome. Trust me, you’re gonna need a big cold glass of milk with this one.

  26. Mary Sibert on April 9, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Looks good to me. Going to try it. Thank you

  47. Cynthia L on April 10, 2021 at 12:18 am

    I make this all the time using Pillsbury sugar free cake mix ,and banana, pineapple,a tad of coconut flakes, I tad of lemon zest, then use sugar free cream cheese frosting. PERFECTION. And way less calorie and fat.

  48. Dual Lingual Lady - Aisha Ahmed on April 10, 2021 at 12:19 am

    * Thank you for the upload.
    Your presentation is πŸ‘ nice, simple, precise, and well explained just like the original.
    When I first made it, this recipe was advertised in a little clip to buy the celebrity recipe book πŸ“–, which needless to say, sorry butt didn’t have the ability to do.
    But anyway, it has been a hit in our family for a very long, long time.

    However, it’s been such a long time since I’ve made one.

    Since we’re not into too much sugar, I put 1 & 1/2 cup of sugar in my batter and we just skipped the icing altogether, I know, Icing is the best, but hey, what can I say, having the cake 🍰 was a treat and that’s a blessing! I am grateful! Praise the Almighty Lord!

    If you don’t mind me asking, do you happen to have a good pancake πŸ₯ž recipe?

  49. Qistin Wong TV on April 10, 2021 at 12:20 am
