The Pineapple Swirl Cake recipe has been on my list of favorite cakes to try for quite sometime, and now I am very honored to finally share it with you.
It was an award-winning “Recipe of the Week”, submitted several years ago by aunt Elisabeth, to Suburban News in Westfield, New Jersey.

First she read through several recipes, to decide which ones she wanted to prepare.
Then she wrote out a menu, and a list of ingredients on hand, as well as the ones we still needed to purchase.
