All purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Sifted all purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Ground cinnamon 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Eggs 3 Large
Vegetable oil 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Bananas 3 Large , mashed
Crushed pineapple 8 Ounce , undrained (1 Can)
Bananas 3 Large , mashed to make 2 1/4 cups
Canned crushed pineapple in juice 8 Ounce , undrained (1 can)
Cream cheese frosting 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Chopped pecans 1 Cup (16 tbs) , toasted


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Butter and flour three 9-inch round cake pans; line the bottoms with wax paper. Onto a piece of wax paper, sift the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

2. In a medium-size bowl, using an electric mixer on high, beat the eggs until light yellow and fluffy; beat in the oil and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the bananas with the pineapple and its juice until well blended.

3. Stir in the flour mixture just until the flour disappears; divide the batter evenly among the pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool the cake in the pans on racks for 5 minutes. Turn out onto the racks, peel off the wax paper, and cool completely.

4. While the cake cools, make the frosting. Ice the cake between the layers, on the sides, and on top, sprinkling as you go with the pecans.
