Cajun Cake

This is a recipe I got from my Grandma Bingham. She passed away in November, and I love when I make this recipe because it is handwritten by her. My family loves this so much that 2 of my kids have requested this cake for their birthday cakes this year alone! It is moist and delicious.

2 cups flour( I use a GF blend)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups crushed pineapple ( I use the whole big can!)
Mix and pour into a 9x13 greased pan and bake 35 min. at 300 degrees
(I do a cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes)

1 stick margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned milk (evaporated)
Boil 5 minutes
Remove from heat
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp vanilla
Spread on while warm onto warm cake. Sauce will seep into the cake for amazing yummyness you will love!
