This is a version of the upside down pineapple cake but I decided to add a few things to the making. I made it on Grandparents Day and my kids and hubby just loved it and a 13x9 cake is gone within a day!

    eagle brand condensed milk

How to Make Pine-Apple Down Under Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray 13x9 inch pan with pam or your choice of spray. Melt butter and pour in the bottom of the pan and allow it to spread over the entire area.
  2. Use 2 cups of the brown sugar and sprinkle atop the butter generously then equally use the two cans of crushed pineapple and spread atop the brown sugar. After that, use the apple pie filling and spread over the crushed pineapple, getting a spoon and chopping the apples into smaller pieces. The apples will mingle with the crushed pineapple and brown sugar, that's okay.
  3. Sprinkle last cup of brown sugar over the apple/pineapple mixture.
  4. Mix cake as told to on the box except add 1 box of instant vanilla pudding to the mixture. Pour atop the apple/pineapple mixture. It will look like you don't have much of a batter there but that's fine, just spread it out over the best you can, it will rise as you can see in the picture.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Use a toothpick to make sure the cake is baked through. I had to leave it in about 5 to 10 minutes longer than the actual cake box said which ended up right at 40 minutes.
  6. Remove cake from oven and allow to cool completely. Afterwards, use a wooden spoon end or something with a small rounded area and poke holes in the cake then drizzle the eagle brand allowing it to fill the holes, spreading any that has flown out over the rest of the cake.
  7. This cake is absolutely delicious and very moist, it doesn't take a whole lot to hit that sweet tooth so make sure ya have a glass of milk on hand. :)

    Enjoy!
