Upside down cake is an Aussie classic; this recipe uses fresh pineapple and pineapple juice to make the cake batter for an all round great pineapple cake.
Something else. I am fascinated by the notion that pineapple has to be round with a hole in the middle, as if the canned format is the correct configuration! Octagons, triangles... - 12 Mar 2011
I thought it was a 2 1/2 star recipe, but the kids liked it. There was way too much butter in the topping and it gave the cake a very weird flavour. This is the first time I made an upside-down pineapple cake and I think I would prefer a crispy top rather than a butter-soaked gooey top. - 24 Feb 2018
this was a very good homemade cake recipe.... the only reason i'm giving it 4 stars is b/c the topping didn't turn out the way i thought..it was very oooey gooey and i thought it was supposed to be kinda crispy .... (i baked it exactly as the recipe said, i didn't lower the temp.) SO READ THIS IF YOU ARE MAKING THIS RECIPE.... WHEN YOUR CAKE IS DONE BAKING AND HAS COOLED........IF YOUR TOPPING IS KINDA RUNNY/GOOEY/NOT CRISPY ENUF FOR YOUR LIKING( you can only tell by flipping it out of the pan first) COVER A PAN IN FOIL AND PLACE CAKE ON PAN (topping up) and place cake in oven on BROIL for a few minutes (depending on how crispy you want it) the pineapple will get a little brown also, but it really helped the topping and still tasted delicious! - 13 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
