I think cake flour may not be right for this recipe,
also make sure the pineapple is drained well, too much
moisture will affect the outcome, you can brown the drained
pineapple rings in butter which adds a little carmelization
and ups the flavor intensity a bit.

Made this last night but it tasted kind of rubbery. Not sure what I did wrong but the flavor was on the bland side. I had to "add" an additional brown sugar and butter glaze once I turned it over as it was too dry. The only thing I can think of that I did differently was that I used cake flour instead of all purpose flour. But that shouldn't have made that much of a difference. Sorry. I'll keep looking.
