1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
6-tablespoons margarine
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350.
Mix sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Add pineapple.
Sift together flour and baking soda two times and mix well into pineapple mixture.

Pour batter into pan and bake for 45 minutes or until cake tests done.
