Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a 9-inch baking pan in the preheating oven. Remove pan.

  • Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter.

  • Arrange pineapple chunks in a single layer over the butter and brown sugar, then sprinkle with pecans; set aside.

  • Beat biscuit baking mix, white sugar, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and egg together in a large bowl on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly.

  • Increase mixer speed to medium and continue beating until batter is smooth, about 4 minutes more.

  • Slowly pour batter over the pineapple mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

  • Run a paring knife between the cake and the edge of the pan to loosen cake. Cover the cake pan with a plate, and invert it to flip the cake out of the pan and onto the plate. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

Hi all, I am the submitter of this recipe. I have found that increasing the butter to 1/2 cup and the brown sugar to 3/4 cup makes this cake even better. I often mix a TBSP of dark rum and a TBSP of the drained pineapple juice to the sauce for added flavor. A can of crushed pineapple works well for this recipe also. Kaye Read More

I have to be honest I liked the topping on this. However the cake was just really bland. I wish I would have read the submitters review on this about making it sweeter or changing up the topping. I am one to think that most desserts are too sweet however the cake part didn't hardly seem sweet at all. When first done it was very soft but by the next day the cake was kind of doughy. I had thought the topping should have been a little more prominent too. Only change I made was using a homemade bisquick type mix. I have used it in many recipes calling for it with great results. I would follow the reviewers advice about increasing the butter and brown sugar and definitely add the nuts it might add something to the flavor and texture. Read More

I made this for my CEO's birthday...per his wife, it's his favorite. I've never made Pineapple Upside Down Cake before so I was attracted to the word "Easy." Not only was it easy, but it got rave reviews from everyone in the office. I used the suggested variations (1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of the drained pineapple juice) and it was perfect. I'd recommend this 100%! Read More

First off, Kaye Lynn contact Allrecipes and ask them to change your recipe. They are very good about that. Go here: http://allrecipes.com/help/Feedback.aspx Now for my review, as per the authors suggestion I used the 1/2 c. butter, 3/4 cup bwn sugar and 1 Tbsp juice. I did add the sugar and juice to the butter in the pan and melted it till it bubbled then I poured it in my 9" round pan. I also use the " Homemade Biscuit Mix" recipe found here on Allrecipes. This is a simple and delicious recipe, thank you Kaye Lynn! Read More
