      Funny…I was thinking the same thing when I was making it…. I guess you could but I don’t know how moist it would be. If you decide to try it, let me know and I can modify the recipe. Thanks!

    Okay, I will try making this for Easter and see what happens with fresh pineapple, but canned pineapple is just as good. I pinned this recipe on Pinterest so I never lose it!
