    Terri F.'s Note:

    This is a very moist upside-down cake that can be served warm or at room temp. When left to sit for a while, the pineapple juices permeate the cake and make it even more delicious! Dark rum gives it really good flavor.

      I was disappointed in the cake. I found the dark rum to be too strong a flavour, and the batter too hard to spread evenly. It wasn't as appealing as I had hoped.

      pretty good, nice and tasty, the batter was a little thicker than i was expecting it to be. you can even make a 9" round cake out of it.

      The flavor of this was very good but don't know if I will make it again. The batter was so thick I could barely spread it on top of the pineapple. I baked this the full 35 minutes and the toothpick came out clean but the cake part just was too heavy for our taste. I didn't bake this in a 9X13 as I was listening to other reviewers so I baked it in my Corningware 10 inch square skillet. Maybe that's why the cake was so heavy but again it was very flavorful and tasty.
