Anyone who was raised in the mountains of North Carolina probally already has this recipe. If not, by all means do bake one sometime when you are filling the need for an incredibly moist cake with the creamiest of frostings!

1 teaspoon each of baking soda, salt and cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (8oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups mashed bananas

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl (flour through cinnamon). Add eggs and oil, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not beat. Stir in vanilla, pineapple, pecans and bananas. Spoon batter into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely before icing.
