Pineapple Upside-Down Bundt® Cake
A moist twist on the original pineapple upside-down cake.
A moist twist on the original pineapple upside-down cake.
The recipe as written is a dud. Following recipe, the cake was under-baked and left far too moisture. I actually put the cake bake in the pan and baked it an additional 20 minutes, which allowed the sugar and butter to crystallize and harden the pineapple just a bit. I will try baking it again but with less pineapple. I believe using half the amount of pineapple will reduce the moisture so the cake can set. I recommend baking the cake until the bubbling around the edge of the pan stops. I’ll give my opinion on taste and texture with my next attempt.Read More
This is my new #1 go-to cake...for any occasion! It's so easy to make & it looks beautiful when flipped over on a serving plate. I followed the recipe exactly & it was moist, delicious!!
This was so simple and good. The best I have ever tasted.
Turned out perfectly. I followed the directions exact
Easy! I made it as a gift. I received Rave reviews. Now I have to make 3 more.
I made this cake for an event that I attended. Everyone raved about it so from that perspective it was a hit. I used a Bundt pan and prrr we pared it as stated in recipe. When I returned to pour the mix, quite a bit of it had seeped out on the countertop. My Bundt pan middle is removable but I have never had anything leaked. I also could not find any 18.25 yellow cake mix. with all that said, I am looking to make again!!
Am I the only one whose pudding stays in the middle? What am I doing wrong?
I am not a baker so when I made this for my friends they didn't believe I had made such a beautiful and delicious cake. Totally 5 stars! If there are more recipes this easy and good, I may just become a baker

It was easy and came out of the oven looking perfect! Tasted buttery and I couldn't stop at one piece!
Family favorite. Easy to make. Great for parties and potluck.
Very moist and delicious. Didn’t make any changes to the recipe.
Easy and crazy delicious!!!!
Our grocery store did not have pineapple slices :( so I had to use crushed pineapple. Box mixes are now only 15 ounces. In my case I used two (doubled the cake ingredients) and poured the extra batter into a loaf pan to make a plain loaf for later.
Absolutely delicious and EASY! The only thing I’d change is to add a bit more pineapple juice to the batter.
It was easy to make and my family loves it.
Excellent and easy! Took 45 min to cook through on 350.
Beautiful and delicious! I think I'm going to use the same basic recipe and make a lemon upside down Bundt cake. Love the caramelized butter/pineapple/cherries. Made the cake look quite elegant.
A little too moist. Couldn’t tell if it was baked and it was oozy after 37 minutes but it tastes delicious!
The best hands down! I’ve been making this cake twice a week for the last few months... my family loves it. The only thing I do differently is I use two cherries between the pineapple halves. We just like cherries.
Such an easy recipe. Followed it exactly. Mine took closer to an hour to cook but it tuned out fabulous! Made this last year too for my husband’s birthday too - was fantastic. Here’s hoping this years... that looks perfect tastes as good as last years!
Looked nice and was easy to make, but putting the melted butter and the fruit at the bottom of the curved bundt pan left all the cake at the bottom very soggy, so we had to scrape that part off. The rest of the cake had good flavor and texture though. Next time I will make in the traditional style.
I used less brown sugar than was called for, wouldn't change a thing otherwise. Deeelicious!
This was so easy and delicious.
This is my new favorite pineapple upside down cake!! Will make this one again. Loved it
Turned out wonderful wouldn't change a thing.
Very good. We had all the kids here and every one of them wanted more. Next time it double. I made as written
My husband likes moist cakes and he liked this one as did our guests. I didn't have the cherries so used a can of whole cranberry sauce instead. It worked fine, using a half teaspoon for the spots where cherries should be.
Y’all if you’r not sure about making this, do it!! I have never had a pineapple upside down cake that tasted this good! Recipe is perfect the way it is 😃
Easiest, moistest, so good. Gonna make this again.
I've made this cake exactly as the directions say several times! I get great raves and everyone wants the recipe!
My husband loved this cake. I only had pineapple cake mix so used that, and just a large size pudding so I used 1/2. The sugar topping crystallized and stayed in the pan so not as gooey top as some upside down cakes I’ve had in the past. Since I had 1/2 the pudding left I made that with part milk and pineapple juice and chilled while the cake was baking. I served a spoon of that on the cake with some coconut and my husband said it tasted so fresh and he would be happy to have the rest instead of dinner?? Big hit in our house. Thanks for the recipe!
I’m not a fan of pineapple upside down cake, but I had a pineapple I needed to use before it went bad. I saw this recipe and decided that’s what I’d make and give the cake to my elderly parents. After I made it, I decided to taste it, since it smelled so good. Oh my GAWD. Was it ever delicious! Buttery, moist and tasty! I ended up splitting this cake with my parents, who also thought it was the best pineapple cake they’ve ever had. This will now be my go-to favorite for special occasions. I had fresh pineapple, so I used that and had a can of it too. I drained the juice from the can to add to the liquid portion for the cake. I didn’t have any cherries, (nor do I like them) so, I left them out. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter. I will make this over and over again.
I added a teaspoon of pure vanilla and it was a great addition.
No changes. It turned out delicious!
So moist and such a lovely presentation! Perfect!
Very easy to make, super moist and very pretty.
Easy to follow recipe and the cake turned out perfect! The cake was also super moist with the added addition of the pudding. It has been years since making a Pineapple Upside Down Cake and the first time making it in a Bundt Pan, so I was a bit nervous. I made this for a work function and they loved it!
easy to prepare and presents well. loved by all. didn't change anything. However of personal preference, I think I prefer an upside down cake not baked in a bundt.
Scrumptious! Easy to make - followed exactly. My family loved it. Thank you!
I have made this several times and is a family favorite. Absolutely love it.
Mine turned out fabulous! I actually baked the cake for 45 minutes.
Came out great! I only had a 15oz. cake mix
This is a Great recipe! My family lives it!!
Came out perfect! I didn’t have pudding, so left it out, didn’t miss it. Thank you!
Literally THE BEST upside down pineapple cake I’ve ever had!!! My aunt gave me the recipe and all the ingredients as a wedding gift and it was SOOOOOO AMAZING!!!
Looks gorgeous! Can’t wait for dessert!
This cake is a hit with my family. I need to add a bit more time to the baking time but other than that I follow recipe exactly. Great cake and so easy. Just a comment about how we are being ripped off by companies, have you noticed that cake mix boxes are now only 15.25 ounces yet the price has not come down but actually gone up.
Tried other recipes over the years. This is easiest and best!! My husband requests this for his birthday!!
Stop reading reviews and make this now! It's easy, moist, rich, and it looks impressive. Serve it with some homemade whipped cream and it will take you to heaven.
This cake was beautiful and delicious. I had a few pineapple slices and cherries left over so I chopped them, drained them well and added them to a container of cool whip for serving on the side. This is definitely a keeper and I will remake again and again. Thanks for the recipe.
Great recipe! Made it for my mother on her Birthday. It was a hit. Very moist and taste wonderful.
Yummmy twist to a traditional cake.
This turned out terrific! First time I made one.
I made this, turned out beautiful! And tasted wonderful, it was a hit, thank yu so much for the share!
Picture perfect and the family loved it. My 1st time trying this recipe. Always make the traditional rectangular one. It’s definitely a winner with us.
The cake is very moist. I do add a little more brown sugar, that and the pineapple is the best part.
I made no changes, but I did use pineapple cake mix. It came out GREAT!
Wonderful! Skipped the cherries so not quite as pretty. Only had sugar free instant vanilla but it came out great anyway! We'll be adding this to our family favorites rotation!
Absolutely fabulous recipe!!! It's my husband's new fav!!!
Awesome recipe. Delicious and super moist. It went fast! Will be making again for sure.
No just like recipe
WOW! This was really really good. I followed the recipes but used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk. Next time, I am going to use fresh pineapple rings since they'll be more tart than canned rings packed in syrup. It was difficult to get the rings to stay upright once I poured the cake mix on but it really was beautiful.
What a wonderful recipe and a beautiful cake, I usually make this for holidays but my husband loves this pineapple upside down cake so much I make it more often.
