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.) Read More

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. Read More

Tastes good not too sweet. But you might want to add a little more milk or water. Not too much though. Read More

I thought this cake was good. I used a regular cake mix and added a can of mandrian oranges. I also used a bundt cake pan and had to cook for at least 45 min. The cake was very moist and tasty. Read More

This recipe was amazing! I made it with the following changes: generously buttered the 9x13 pan and sprinkled 1/4 cup brown sugar over the bottom. Topped brown sugar with sliced pineapple and scattered blueberries over the slices. Topped with the cake mix/pineapple mixture to which I added some ground flax seed meal for texture and moisture. Baked around 40 minutes and the resulting cake needed no frosting at all. The sliced fruit and berries added all the color and flavor one could hope for. This would be great with any fruit on the bottom fabulous flavor and texture. Read More
