Beautiful cake! If you are looking for a little sweater cake, recommend melting 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar and add to pan before pineapples/nuts. Makes it a little more traditional. This is a great dessert because eliminates need for frosting! As a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home magazine, I love recipes that can be assembled quickly and deliver outstanding taste!

Tasty! Not your traditional upside down cake, but a good short cut recipe.

First pineapple upside-down cake that came out of the pan with no mishaps. I did use a pineapple cake mix instead of white mix. Cake was moist and light in flavor.

I made this recipe exactly the way it was called for. It is a lttle blan...It could of used some brown sugar or spice. I also buttered the pan...so the cake would not stick
