This is the full fat version of my pineapple cake.  To cut down on all the fat, use the following ingredients instead, mix together and bake at the same temperature for the same amount of time.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 ½ cups white sugar
½ cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 (20 ounce) crushed pineapple with 100% juice (add pineapple and juice)
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
TIP: If you don’t have dark brown sugar on hand, add a tablespoon of molasses for every cup of light brown sugar.
