It calls for a small tin of pineapple. I don't have a tin of crushed pineapple. would the blended flesh of an orange suffice for a substitute!

No answer after 20 mins; so maybe I'll give it a go and see what happens. Really wanted to get the baking out of the way tonight.

I'd say that would be fine - might be a bit late but hope it worked OK for you.

I've just pulled it out the oven now. I substituted 3 pureed oranges for the 3/4 c orange juice and small tin crushed pineapple. The raw mixture tasted good; the batter texture was fair. It's smelling good and looking fine. I'll cut it tomorrow after icing it and see the real proof then.

So it turned out on the moist side; 2 oranges would've sufficed. But it's still perfectly edible and good in all other regards.
