Praline Pecan Upsidedown Cake

Susan Feliciano


I made this up once because I didn't have any pineapple and wanted to make a quick cake that I didn't have to frost. Our family loved it, and it was even requested to be included in one of our church cookbooks. It's printed in Bread From House To House, 1994.
