    ElaineM's Note:

    This recipe is by far the best Pineapple Upside Down cake that I've ever made. It is also quick and easy. The cake is very moist and rises much higher than the average recipe. The combination of pineapple cake mix and pineapple juice isn't overwhelming either. I've been meaning to edit this for ages, however it looks so much better if you use dark brown sugar. Also if you'd like more topping, use 3/4 cup butter with 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar.

      If I could give it more, I would! Of course, I made some modifications as I can't just leave well enough alone. Here is what I did...
      Regular yellow cake instead of the pineapple cake (cheaper)
      Fage 0 Greek yogurt instead of the oil (lower fat and creamier consistency)

      Yum yum yum! Thanks Elaine for this recipe! A keeper for sure!

      This is a good cake but you can taste the imitation pineapple in the duncan hines mix. It really bothered me. Seems counterproductive... why not just use yellow cake mix and use pineapple juice instead of the water? I'm not saying the cake wasn't good, but that imitation pineapple flavor was annoying. It reminds me of sonic slushy or snow cone flavoring or something. But very moist, only my husband and I could taste the fake pineapple flavoring bc we have been enjoying a fresh pineapple cake recently from the store and were hoping to have a recipe of our own.

      This is very good, I made the recipe exactly the same except after you lay down the pineapple rings, I also added crushed pineapple all around the rings to fill in the open spaces. I added the cherries to the ring and all around the crushed pineapple. Then I continued with the steps in the recipe. Turned out very good and really moist, I added a picture of the finished cake.
