This is a really nice cake, the brown sugar gives the pineapple a caramel flavour and makes it lovely and moist. I used a square cake tin and it needed to cook about 15 mins longer than the time mentioned in the instructions. Thanks for posting.
Very tasty dessert! I was unsure how to brown the pineapple, as I have never heard or done that before, but I fried it with brown sugar and butter for about 5 minutes. It goes really well with your Sloppy Joe recipe, which we had for dinner tonight, as well! Thank you for posting this!
I work in a group home and made this cake for an awards dinner per my clients request. They loved it. I mixed the sugar and butter and poured it over pineapple rings instead of crushed pineapple. It turned out great. Now in my cook book.
I made this for dessert and while eating it I asked my DH how it was. He said it was, "pretty good". I asked him how many stars and he said 14 so I said on a scale of 1 to 5 and he said, "give it a 5, it's good!" I agree so I guess that rates you a 5! Thanks for the recipe!
I accidentally made this with chunkrd pineapple, but it is a very delicious recipe. my husband enjoyed it very much.
I made this cake and it was delish! Everyone liked it. Since I didn't have crushed pineapple I just mashed the ones I had (crushed works better that rings because it's more even, also, when I went to pour the batter over the pineapple I was worried there wasn't enough to cover the pineapple but it worked out fine. Thank you!
I really liked this cake. the topping does become very sweet, and I could prob double it and have it be super yummy. I made my cake in a 13x9 pan, and I bet using a spring pan would work well in getting the cake out without disturbing the topping, as I found that part tricky.
I really liked this. I used chunk pineapple because it was what was on hand; a 20oz can. I think a bigger can would have been a little better -- the size wasn't specified. I took it out ten minutes early because it was burning. It was easy and fun to make. The carmelized sugar became VERY sweet, like candy, almost too sweet (and stuck in my teeth!) but overall I liked this and will make it again. My husband, who dislikes pineapple, didn't care for it.
This is now my husband's favorite birthday cake! Thanks for sharing this great recipe Kurt!
Delicious! I'll make it again! :-)
