    Jostlori's Note:

    Living in the tropics has taught me that even the good ole' faithful recipes get tweaked now and then! Like the traditional Pineapple Upside Down Cake, this one is yummy in a totally different way! Starfruit can be found throughout the Caribbean and Central America. Be sure your starfruits are very ripe, to the point where you might have to trim back some of the softer brown spots.
