I broke down and made my grandmother's pineapple cake yesterday. I had not had it in 25+ years and was concerned so I called my mom who gave me the recipe, minus 1 item.... the old dawg...LOL
It is drained crushed pineapple, sugar, cornstarch, and water. The missing ingredient???? FOOD COLORING!
Turned out great... by the way, those are the items that go into the filling.
