I adore this recipe, and so did Princess Diana. She chose this recipe for her wedding cake.
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten with mixer
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
8 ounces crushed pineapple, with juice
1 1/2 cups chopped bananas
1 cup chopped apples
3/4 cup coconut
3/4 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan.
Mix together the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. Sift the dry ingredients; add to mixture. Add remaining ingredients. Bake for 48 minutes.
Cool, then frost with Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2-3 cups confectioners sugar, depending on how sweet you like it
1 teaspoon vanilla
