My Dad (Edward Kielpikowski) loved to make this cake for company, potlucks, and for just general eating. He always said it was easy to remember because it took 2 of everything. That is almost true with the exception of salt and nuts – their measurement is 1/2 and the can of pineapple, but it was a 20 oz can. 🙂 Most of the time my parents served this without the rich frosting as that made it deadly – just kidding, but it is certainly “rich” enough without it… LOL This recipe came from my Mom’s Aunt Estelle (Melton) .
-Have to say I was so excited about this receipe as I had all the ingredients and it sounded so yummy. I reduced the sugar to one cup and it was perfect for sweetness. However, I did not care for the texture. Very spongy. I seriously think some oil was necessary just as in a carrot cake. Much prefer pineapple upside cake!
-Tricia Broussard: I don’t think there is a substitute for pineapple in the Preacher’s Cake, or it would lose the taste that people love about it! Perhaps you could try using applesauce instead of pineapple but I wouldn’t recommend it.
-Why do people keep asking about the kind of pineapple and whether you use the juice too, when it’s right there in the recipe? Did I miss something? And by the way, I have made this cake and it is absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
