Lyn's notes for this recipe:
Getting more pineapple in every bite, led me to the crushed pineapple.

I love the canned in "it's own juice" cuz I can control the sweetness and the love of brown sugar!! YUMMM!!

Heat oven to 325. 7x12"(2-qt)glass baking dish, melt butter in oven; add 1 cup brown sugar and stir.
Drain pineapple in a sieve over a 4-cup measuring cup, reserving; add pineapple to brown sugar; mix and spread evenly; sprinkle walnuts liberally over pineapple.
Add water to pineapple juice to make 1 cup; add oil and eggs; wisk and pour into cake mix, mixing well. Pour slowly over pineapple and bake until cake is done, about 40-45 minutes.
Cool slightly and turn out onto platter (scooping up any topping left in dish and spread back on cake).

I love pineapple upside cake. How much sugar?

I think you forgot to included the brown sugar in the recipe. Can you bake it in a 9x13 pan (3qt)instead of a 7x12 (2qt)?

I do agree with you I love the can its own juice too. Great looking recipe saved

Linda,Yes you can make this cake in a 9x13 pan, but you will have a thinner cake and less topping per sq inch! The brown sugar is there, just not the amount! lol it's 1 cup of brown sugar! I fixed the recipe, thanks all for catching my not so good proof reading!! LOL :))) xo Lyn*
