"My mom made the best pineapple upside down cake and unfortunately no one in the family has the recipe. I found this recipe on the internet somewhere, and its taste like my Mom's recipe. It is so yummy and no yellow cake mix. Note: This was edited from when it was first posted, I accidently added all the butter with the brown sugar for top coating."

    Has anyone made this in a cupcake tin? I want to make them for my daughter's birthday in addition to her cake. If so, what would the bake time be?

    This cake was absolutely delicious! I used fresh pineapple and added maraschino cherries. I also substituted orange juice instead of pineapple juice since I was using fresh pineapple. Super moist! I read some of the other reviews and cut down the brown sugar to 2/3 cup and it was more than plenty! I baked it in a 8x8 glass pan and had to cook it for a total of 50 minutes. Came out perfect! Pineapple upside cake is my father-n-law’s favorite cake and he said it was the best one he has ever had! Thanks for the great recipe!

    Absolutely delicious and really moist. I think cast iron is the best way to make these cakes -- they turn out so well. Will have to share with the neighbors or ration it out -- otherwise it will be gone in a flash.

    I have made this recipe several times and it always turned out fantastic.

    This recipe has way too much unnecessary sugar!! Is 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar correct? When I turned my cake out, I had about 1/4 c. of brown sugar left in the pan. I had already cut the amount of sugar in the cake batter to a 1/2 cup. Next time I will cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. That should be plenty.

    Absolutely amazing cake!!! I even tried it with a round 8in deep cake form and it came out like a treacle pineapple cake. Ideal cake and delicious flavour!!

    This recipe has a great texture to it. I was going for a "Pina Colada" upside down cake, so I substituted the milk for coconut milk and even added some to the butter/sugar mixture. Next time I'll try it with coconut cream so that the flavor stands out more. My only complaint is that since no pan size was specified, I used 9x13. The cake was way too "thin"; I'll use 9x11 next time.Thanks for a great recipe!

<p>I am a stay at home mom of two children, although, both now are in college. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I received my degree from the Ohio State University and am a huge fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=DEREK08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/DEREK08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><br />I have so many cook books that it is hard to pick one as my favorite, but would say I have used the Betty Crocker Cookbook the most since getting married for basic recipes. <br />I love to cook and try new recipes, but prefer simple and quick recipes. I don't like to cook things that require going to specialized grocery stores. I subscribe to several cooking magazines, that usually, require everyday on-hand ingredients. <br /><br />I am not very fond of most seafood, but do enjoy lobster, grilled shrimp and chilean sea bass. I won't cook anything with rosemary or curry, as I really don't like either herbs' flavor. And now from trying recipes, I found that I don't like dijon mustard, but love vinegar and mustard, not sure why I don't like the taste of dijon mustard.</p><p><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT3-Participation.gif border=0 alt=Photo /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view?t=gumnuts.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/gumnuts.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/duch*eSS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Diner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><br /><br />Adopted banner: <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/ZWT4/gastronomic%20gauchos/GGneon-logo.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/duch*eSS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=diner524 target=_top><img src=http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=diner524&amp;s=blgrv border=0 alt=Website hspace=4 vspace=2 align=middle /></a> <br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/ target=_top>Free Counter</a> <br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=lazymecookathon.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view&curren;t=Samsbutton.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/Samsbutton.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
