Sift flour and baking powder together; add to creamed mixture, 1 large spoonful at a time, alternately with milk. Add vanilla; stir in 3/4 cup undrained pineapple with juice and blend well. Pour batter into a well greased and floured 10-inch tube pan.

Delicious! This cake has a perfect consistency and turned out to be one of the best cakes I've ever made...super easy and a hit with my family. I will definitely be making this again soon. **It might just be my oven but the cake did cook completely in less time than the recipe states- so check yours before the time is up.
