So I went ahead & made this last nite, like I mentioned ystrday, decided to go the way of no nuts, hubby didn't even notice. I think I goofed sumwhere at the end tho. Either I cooked it a lil' too long, chk'd it at 50 mins & it seemed perfectly done but mayb it burned or I lft it in the pan a few mins too long...bc the ooey, gooey butter n sugar didn't stay on the cake but stuck to the pan :-( altho the pineapples stayed on the cake jus fine. Any thoughts?

But despite that lil' falter the cake came out delicious. This is my 2nd only time ever making this cake in almost 30 yrs. TY for an awesome recipe. I look 4ward to making at our nxt family get 2gether, so they can try it, too :D

Going to make this for hubby 2day. A lil' surprise for him from me for Father's Day. He used to tell me that he loves p.u.c. but we haven't had it in ages. We don't have the iron skillet, so praying it will come out as good as I read some ppl say in a reg 9x13. Wish me luck, as I rarely make cakes frm scratch, sumthin new I'm learning in my older age ;-)

Oh btw: 1 question. I don't like walnuts, so thinking of either doing 1/2 with & 1/2 w/o or not using them at all. Will either way disrupt the way the cake comes out?

Theresa, thanks so much for this post! It' a scratch recipe that I hadn't tried before and I am anxious to try it next time! I always make it exactly the same except that I use a butter cake mix, use butter instead of oil and use the pineapple juice with any amount of water necessary to make up the water called for in the mix. However, this cake part sounds delicious, and I'll just bet I'd like it even better!
