In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Combine oil, lemon juice, and vanilla. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. If necessary, add enough water to juice to measure 3/4 cup. Add oil mixture and pineapple juice mixture to dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened. Fold in pineapple. Place in greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40-50 minutes.
Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spread over cake. Sprinkle with coconut if desired.

What size cream cheese and do you make the whipped cream according to the package directions? I was thinking about this recipe earlier today and going to call my mother to ask her for it - what a surprise to see it here - thanks - I can hardly wait to make it now.
