Grammy Cake

I'd heard about this cake three times from different people in one week.  It is to die for!  Seriously, we had it for breakfast the next morning with ice cream, it was so good!  When I looked up the recipe, it was referred to as a coffee cake.  My mind says dry when I hear the words coffee cake.  But, this cake is FAR from dry!  It's a MUST try!

Here's the recipe and then we are off for the day to continue on the honey-do list.  It's called Grammy Cake and I did not name it. ;)

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, including juice.  DO NOT DRAIN
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup evaporated milk (I accidentally used the whole can and it was perfect.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix the sugar, clour, salt, soda, eggs and pineapple together and pour into a 9x13" pan.  Sprinkle the top with the brown sugar and chopped nuts.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
While the cake is baking, cook the evaporated milk, sigar, butter and vanilla.  Immediately as the comes out of the oven,  pour the cooked milk mixture over the entire cake.  Keep refrigerated, if there is any left.  (We served it with ice cream.)  ENJOY!!
