Pineapple Mojo Cake

I could not find a good upside down pineapple cake so I made this up. This cake is so moist it needs no icing. It's great, especially for breakfast!

Honey Bun Cake I

Rating: 4.5 stars 1024
This cake tastes just like the name suggests - like a honey bun. It has been served to hundreds of people and everyone has said how much they liked it. It is a sweet cake and not for those that are watching their weight. Tastes wonderful if served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This is the best cake I have ever tasted. My mom gave me this recipe and I can't make it often because I would weigh 500 pounds. Hope it lasts more than a day at your house!

You won't believe this cake made with just cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, and, of course, beer. Try it and see if your friends can guess what's in it.

Inspiration and Ideas

Outrageously Buttery Crumb Cake
Rating: Unrated 116
This simple crumb cake is the BEST I ever tasted. The cake is so moist, and there is a ton of buttery crumb topping to die for. It's my aunt's recipe from the 1970's (hence the 1 pound of butter) and therefore of uttermost decadence, but oh so addictive! I've made this recipe so many times, with so many compliments. I basically eyeball the measurements now (I like a lot of cinnamon) but below is the original recipe.
