"This cake recipe is easy to make, using pineapple for a fruity cake and also makes a glaze that helps deliver a cake that is very moist."

My mom always makes pineapple upside-down cake from scratch for birthdays with the white cake and then the sugar and pineapple rings on top. This cake tastes very similar, but it is so much easier. The only thing missing was the maraschino cherries. My parents, my sister, and I really enjoyed it late one night, while it was fresh from the oven. I'm sure it would be great with ice cream or whipped cream on top too...
The cake tasted fine, but the topping ruined it. There is way too much of it, and it weighed down the cake so much that there were holes everywhere. My husband wouldn't try it just based on apperance. You could probably skip the topping all together, or cut in in half at LEAST and it would be better. I'm dissapointed that more than likely, I'll be tossing the rest of the cake.
My husband and I really enjoyed this and it was so easy to make. I didn't have any walnuts so I decided to use a crumble topping from an apple crisp recipe and it turned out great. Also I realized that I was out of evaporated milk so I used sweetened condensed milk in place of that and the sugar. I will probably continue to make it this way because it was excellent.
This was so moist and so delicious! My whole family enjoyed it! Will definitely be making it again.
This was okay warm from the oven, but after it cooled it had a very unappealing clammy texture. My kids wouldn't touch it and we threw out over half of it--very rare for desserts in our house.
Outstanding! Great texture (similar to coffee cake texture). Tasted similar to pineapple upside down cake but much better.
This was a big hit! It's very moist and great warm or cold. I reduced the brown sugar to one quarter cup and didn't add the nuts. Contrary to the instructions I did butter the pan. Thanks for the recipe, this will be a regular dessert at my house.
Oh soooo good Kitty! This almost has a caramely flavor going on...delicious. I forgot to add the brown sugar and walnuts to the top of the cake so I just mixed them in along with the icing ingredients. It turned out perfect and the pineapple gave this a suprisingly wonderful taste. I'll pass this one on...thankx a bunch.
