My mother-in-law attended a party last week and has been instructed to collect the very best recipes from her friends. Here is a tropical dump cake dessert recipe she picked up. Between all her clubs and long-time friends I'm sure she is going to give me more than I could hope for... Anyway, this dish was something "Mom" said was in demand at the party and that several people asked for the recipe. I've seen some like this but with cherry--this one is purely a pineapple version.
