Another version of pineapple upside down cake. I love experimenting with different ingredients, by the addition of pecans, buttermilk and cinnamon. The cinnamon was subtle but gave the cake awesome flavor. What a moist little cake I ended up with!

Family tested and absolutely approved with seconds...lol
