Pineapple Cake

I have been making this cake for many years and couldn't believe I hadn't posted it yet. This is the moist-est cake I have had and it's very low fat (but then you slather on the frosting). Not at all low sugar though.
Pineapple Cake
2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla extract
1 (20-oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice

1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°.               

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and baking soda. Make a well in the center and add the eggs, vanilla and crushed pineapple, with liquid from can. Mix well to blend.               

Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.               

To make the frosting: in a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Spread on warm cake.
