I made this cake with a can of sliced peaches and maraschino cherries.
I followed the same recipe but first line with peaches and a cherry in between.

Gave away as a present!

A very pretty cake! I used pineapple cake mix, used all juice instead of part water. We enjoyed it; I will make it again. Thanks for posting.....Janet

Really simple recipe that everyone who uses cake mix should try! Maybe next time I will try using whole pineapple rings and then slicing them in half to create a sort of fan or flower shape around the bundt pan.

This is one of my all time favorite cakes and I was glad to find this recipe. The picture really sold me on trying this one it looked so pretty. I used a bundt pan and took Julie's advice about melting the sugar and butter and the sugar did dissolve good. I served with a big dollop of whip cream on top and we loved every bite!

Made this yesterday for a Hawaiian themed party. It was a hit with everyone! I, too changed the topping to 4 TBL butter. I think next time I will also add a TBL or 2 more brown sugar for the topping.

This was really good. I added extra butter to the bottom of the pan and left out the cherries. I used all pineapple juice instead of part water. My first time to ever make a bundt cake and it turned out wonderfully. Thanks for the recipe. Will make again!

Thanks for posting this outstanding recipe. I actually have made it in a 9 X 13 inch glass pan, and it just came out to perfection each and every time. I followed the recipe but I added 1 1/2 Cups of Pinapple Juice/Water combination. I felt it needed the extra moisture. Great cake to take to a BBQ or Pot-Luck, everyone couldn't say enough great things about it. A keeper for sure.... Thanks for posting it Nanita.

I used pineapple rings instead of crushed pineapple. It came out great and didn't even last the weekend. This is my new upside down cake recipe.

I baked this cake tonight. It looks just like the picture. I was a little disappointed that the brown sugar mixture was still a little grainy. I like it a little more carmelized also. I will bake it again and I think that the next time I will melt the butter and brown sugar in an iron skillet and then pour it into the bundt pan. I believe this will give it the carmelized texture I prefer. It's definitely a keeper recipe.
