1 (18.25 ounce) package
reduced fat yellow cake mix
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple with juice
After reading the reviews, I decided to buy a pineaple box cake mix. I followed the directions to make the cake (3 eggs and 1 can crushed pineapple with juice)but decided to make a pineapple upside down cake.
I put 1/2 stick melted butter and 3/4 cup brown sugar in the 9x13 pan then placed 2-8 oz cans of drained pineapple tidbits (didn't have rings) and lots of marashino cherries. Then poured the batter on top. It baked at 350 close to 50 minutes or so...I kept baking til the center raised as high as the sides...it came out as moist as can be for all the baking...and has that extra pineapple taste, too.
This was goof for a snack cake however the texture and flavor were not what I had expected. I followed the recipe exactly - however I added a powdered sugar glaze on top (powdered sugar, water and pineapple exract.)
For the real pineapple lovers, try this with Duncan Hines' Pineapple Supreme cake mix! Delicious!
If you like pineapple upside down cake you'll like this. It tastes the same to me. I took it for a potluck and there was no leftovers. My husband and daughter didn't even get to try it. I made it again a couple days later for them and it lasted only a day. This will be one of my new favorites. If I ever want a pineapple upside down cake and don't have a lot of time this is what I'll make for sure.
I read other reviews and so I added a carton of fruitcake fruits and about 1 cup of chopped walnuts. It was moist, delicious and so different and easy. Will be making this again.
I got GREAT ratings from my friends after we ate this cake. I made some changes and I just wanted to let you know if ou wanted to try it.
use: 2 cups crushed pineapples w/ juice; 1 cup mashed bananas; 1/2 cup sugar; and only 2 eggs; then top w/ choc. frosting! It is great you gotta try it!
Tastes good, not too sweet. But you might want to add a little more milk or water. Not too much though.
This cake tastes great. I think it was easy to make, and it would be great to eat with some sugar-free vanilla ice cream!
