    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    I got this recipe of my auntie, who always brings this round when she feels people need or deserve a little treat. It's really simple and quite quick to do, but it makes a really yummy and moist cake. If you can't get vanilla sugar, you can use 1 tsp vanilla essence instead, or you can make your own by putting about an inch of a vanilla pod in a screw top jar with 1/2 cup of sugar and leave it for a couple of days (the rest will keep).

      I made this for my german mother and she really liked it (as did the rest of us.) The cake was moist and was delicious with a cup of tea. I didn't have vanilla sugar so I added a tsp of vanilla extract, but that was the only change I made. Thanks for the recipe.

      So, I did a lot wrong with this recipe... for example, I could not find Marzipan at the store, or Almond paste to make some.. so I substituted with about 1 tsp of Almond Extract.. Im sure it did not do the originaly recipe justice.. I also used crushed pineapple rather than chunked.. regardless, Everyone loved the cake! Thank you!

      The only reason I'm giving this a 4 is because my guests claimed THEY loved it. I thought it could have used a bit more marzipan flavor (maybe I will add some almond extract next time?). Also, I baked it for 65 minutes and it appeared done, yet the outside was over baked and the inside bottom was under-baked. If I baked it any longer the outside would have burnt! None-the-less, I think I will try this recipe again sometime with a bit of tweaking.
