Dr. Bird Cake

1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in natural juice (or no sugar added)
1 C. mashed ripe bananas (2 bananas)
3 eggs
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. crisco or corn oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. nuts/raisins (optional) I always add more

Grease and flour an angel food cake pan. Mash bananas and drain pineapple. Mix all ingredients
in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour and 15 minutes. Cool, remove from pan and garnish with powdered sugar.

If your cake comes out dry (it shouldn't, this is a very moist cake), add a little pineapple juice.
I do not drain the pineapple super well.
