Susan's Story

This is a very moist cake.
Not only are there pineapple rings on the top of this cake, but there is crushed pineapple in the cake.

THIS IS THE TASTIEST Upsidedown Pineapple Cake I have ever tasted using a cake mix.

    I've only ever seen pineapple upside-down cake done in iron skillets, Sue. Nice to know it can be done in other types of pans. Is it very hard to remove?

    Ellen - It won't be hard to get out of the pan because it is just like a cake and on the bottom you have butter and pineapple. Your nightmare won't happen! LOL This recipe is just like the one I was telling you about except it has double the pineapple so I am sure It will be ok. Only one time when I took my cake out of the pan did one circle of pineapple remain. I simply took a utensil, not sure what-maybe a spatula and placed it back where it was. Hope you make is really yummy..

    I believe I have all the ingredients on hand. My mother made a killer pineapple upside-down cake. She made one every year for my sister's husband's birthday. And for my youngest brother's birthday, she made a huge bowl of tapioca pudding.
