I have made this recipes four times now. The first time I followed the recipe and used 1/2 cup butter, it came out very good, it just had a stronger buttely flavor. The second time I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup and added more pineapple, it was delicious! The third time I used peaches instead of pineapple and it was great also. And the fourth time I used apples and added some spices, it tasted even better!

This may be a good starter recipe for a pineapple cake/cobbler hybrid dessert as the texture and consistency was nice. Yet as is, I can't rate it any higher. The flavor is only intense butter and sweetness. I even followed other users' good suggestions and used half the amount of butter and extra pineapple. If I try it again, I would double or more the pineapple, add vanilla flavoring, cinnamon and maybe even a touch of cloves. Substitution for self-rising flour: If you don't have it you can just use regular flour and add 1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt to regular flour.

This was great! I was alittle worried at first when it was so thin and you just mixed everything together but it was so good. It was the first time I attempted something like this. It was so easy and really wonderful. I added mine over ice cream. YYUUMMMYY

What a quick and easy dessert! It tastes just like pineapple upside down cake. I sprayed the bottom of the pan with butter flavored Pam and used a small amount of melted lite butter. I added 1 tsp. each of vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. I also opted for fresh cherries. This goes great topped with Cool Whip.

I thought this was very tasty. I did make a couple adjustments though. I cut the butter amount in half, and I used thawed, frozen dark red cherries. I thought this helped cut down on some of the sweetness. I also used a 20 oz can of pineapple. If you don't have self-rising flour, just use regular flour with 1 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt. I will definitely make this again.

I've read all the reviews and have now made this recipe twice. I was using fresh pineapple and the firsttime it was soooo sloppy, but tasted wonderful!!! The second time I added an extra cup of flour and it came out great. I think it was sloppy the first time because when the sugars hit the pineapple it juiced up and made it too moist. This is great! WE love it!

I have used this 1/1/1/1 recipe for peach cobbler since I was about 6 or 8 years old (42 now!), but never would have thought about using is for Pineapple Upside-down Cake. What a great idea! I had some pineapple and cherries left from Christmas ham and needed to get them out of the fridge, so was looking for a recipe. I followed this closley but made a couple of adjustments: Used 1 cup of brown sugar and combined it with the melted butter in the pan. Then I laid-out cherries and pineapple as for 'regular' upside-down cake. Then I poured the batter on top and baked as directed. Turned-out just right and tastes very good. Thanks for the helpful recipe. For those that had trouble: This particluar recipe, while easy, is very sensitive to pan-size and oven temp. Time and temp MUST be adjusted if the pan is different than 9x13.
