  3. Mix all the wet ingrediants including the pineapple juice mixture together in a large bowl. Use a large spoon, not a blender.
  4. Seperately, mix the dry ingrediants together in another bowl.
  5. Add "dry" mixture to "wet" mixture and mix well.
  6. Grease the 9x13 pan.
  7. Pour the batter into the pan.
  8. Bake at 350F (175C) for 30 - 40 minutes. You should be able to stick a toothpick into the center and have it come out dry.
