Scrumptous!!! I fixed this as a sheet cake for lack of round cake pans of the correct dimensions. It was extremely moist & delicious. My husband & I finished the entire cake in less than a week!
I made it exactly as directed. It would be better with more of the pineapple brown sugar mixture at the bottom as that was the best part. It was a very refreshing cake - better than something out of a box but not as good as I expected. It took much longer to bake than in the recipe so maybe mine was a bit more dry because of this. I added a cool whip/vanilla pudding/pineapple mixture of icing and put it on top of the cake which made it even nicer.
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday and he loved it! I left out the walnuts and added more pineapple and brown sugar to the upside down layer and it turned out delicious, the cinnamon adds a unique flavor to the pineapple and brown sugar.
I used pecans instead of walnuts and pineapple cake mix...using 1 cup buttermilk, 4 eggs, and 1/4 cup canola oil (that makes cake mixes taste more home-made). I put the pineapple (whick was pineapple chunks) mix in the bottom of a bundt pan and cooked it for 1 hour. It got great reviews!
Very moist. I used a bundt pan & used a 15oz can of pineapple. Next time I'm going to try 1 tsp of cinnamon because we couldn't taste it.
Everyone loved this in my house. My 18 month old wanted "More!". I didn't have a yellow cake mix so I used lemon. I also was out of crushed pineapple so I made the brown sugar mix, spread it over the pans and layed down pineapple rings with maraschino cherries. Delicious!
This is the best pineapple cake ever! I can't tell you how many I made and handed out as gifts. To "kick it up a notch" I added orange marmalade to the cake batter. It gives it a zing.
My family enjoyed this cake and it was sooo simple to make. I made it exactly as directed except I added water to the pineapple juice to make 1 1/3 cups. It also took alot longer to bake than 25 minutes. The box said 35 minutes but I even baked it a few minutes longer than that.
