Pineapple "Inside Out" Bundt Cake

Laurie Lenartowicz


This bundt cake is easy and fun. We have all had "pineapple upside-down" cakes. I decided to turn the tables and make a cake with the pineapple, cherries and brown sugar inside. It's a great take along cake for a picnic, brunch, dinner or summer luau.
