READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by grandma2969

I always use this recipe with Duncan Hines pineapple cake...turns out moist and delicious every time...I use a 13x9 baking pan and reserve juice from pineapple slices..and add enough water to juice to make 1 cup liquid..

Can't believe it took me so long to rate this awesome cake - I've made it twice now for birthdays at work - and everyone says it's the BEST Pineapple Upside Down Cake they've ever eaten. Extremely moist and it rises high and is light - great flavor with the pineapple juice - this one's a keeper!!
