Spring Day Cake

Don't let the simple name of this
recipe fool you. This cake is so moist.
The pineapple in the cake makes
a huge difference in the texture.
(In a great way!)
And the frosting...
Oh My Flipping Heck, you're
gonna want to lick the bowl clean!

I would so love this dessert! I actually have my own version of it written out on a card in front of me, reminding me to make it soon. I love the addition of almond flavoring, rather than the vanilla I always use. And I am in love with cream cheese...perfect topping for anything!

Do you drain the pineapple? Sounds and looks wonderful!
