This is an excellent recipe i came up with. I really like upside down pineapple cake, and i thought I'd try to bake it from scratch. It was wonderful so i thought i would share it.I used pineapple chunks instead because it was all i had in the cabinet at the time. Also i left the cherries out because no one in the house likes them, you can include them if you want, make a little design and have fun with it! This cake is superb with vanilla ice cream.
