This is a super easy and very delicious cake. The topping bakes right into the cake and makes for a very flavorful dessert. To remove it from the pan, I lined a cookie sheet with foil, put it on top of the cake, then flipped them over. Worked great. This is very good, I recommend you try it!

Wonderful, light, flavorful, large and easy to make. I used a 9x13 oblong pan, about 2 cups of light brown sugar (didn't have dark brown and we like brown suger) 2 cans of pineapple chunks, (didn't have slices but the chunks covered every inch of the cake top and would use them again)and the maraschino cherries but not the walnuts. Great results with no complaints in my house and no cake left either. A keeper for sure!

Wonderful! I however made a smaller version in a round pan using the "Jiffy" cake mix. Its just easier to have a plate for and there are no left overs (always keep wanting more you know)!

This was so delicious. I have a friend here at work and today is her last day and I made her this because she likes pineapple upside down cake and she and everyone else loved it. It was gone so fast. It is yummy and very easy to make. I am going to keep this recipe and use it from now on. I will tell you that I did use crushed pineapple though instead of pineapple slices and it came out good and I also used a half cup of butter rather than 1/4 cup. I thought it was going to be too much butter at first but it wasnt at all. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

DELICIOUS, I made this using PEACHES, Home canned peach halves. Made it in an oblong pan, Had a platter that fit. Made a few cupcakes as I had extra batter, put butter, brown sugar and a peach halve in each. Great thanks for the Recipe.
