Yummy, we loved this pineapple up-side-down cake. I used a jiffy yellow cake mix and a whole can of chunked pineapple, Worked great. I did this because there is only 3 of us and we don't need a big cake. Thank you Laurie for the recipe.

VERY good! This is the second time I have made it in a month. Like others, I used the pineapple juice instead of the water. I also had 2 T. of sour cream to use up, I added those to the measuring cup, then added the oil to make the 1/3 cup. Mine was totally done at 45 minutes, so watch your time! Thanks for sharing, LAURIE, this will be made often!

The recipe tripled very well. I used a commercial sized pan and the cake came out very good. I also use the juice from the pinnaples in place of the water. Thanks for posting!

This is the only way I've ever made pineapple upside-down cake and it is probably the only way I ever will. I like using 2/3 cup of the pineapple juice from draining the slices in place of 2/3 cup of the water it takes for the cake mix. Really brings the pineapple flavor full circle. Thanks for posting a classic!

Super easy and taste great. I baked for 40 min. and had a moist but done cake. Oh i used crushed pineapple this time and I like it better than rings.

I chose to make this cake for the Chef-I-Am cakeathon. This is a delicious cake. I took it to a fundraiser bakesale for United Way. I followed the recipe exactly but I substituted crushed pineapple because that is what I had at home. Thank you for a wonderful cake.

This was the most delicious pineapple upside-down cake! I made it for a birthday at work and everyone has been just raving! I used the juice from the can of pineapple as part of the water that the cake mix called for and I also used butter in the topping instead of margarine. I also underbaked by about 10 minutes and it is super moist without being batter-y. Thanks for this delicious recipe!
