    PaulaG's Note:

    Butternut squash, apple and yes, pineapple makes this unique variation of a pineapple upside down cake the perfect choice for autumn. It has the traditional brown sugar-pineapple topping with a very moist and oh so delicious spice cake twist. The recipe was tested in a 4 quart oval crock-pot and would work fine in a 4 quart round crock-pot as well. A friend of mind reported that the cake worked well in a 5 quart round crock-pot.

      Yum, yum, yum!! I did make some modifications... I used canned mandarin segments instead of the pineapple because my can of pineapple was much too big and subbed the pecans for walnuts. I also omitted the oil in the cake because my yogurt was 6% fat. Finally, I didn't have an apple so I added a snack-sized container of applesauce. Delicious! Baked in a 1.6 quart crock-pot, rose right to the top but it fit, though I did need to bake it considerably longer. Served warm and drizzled with some home-made dulce de leche. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

      THIS IS A WONDERFUL TASTING CAKE, & a very worthy keeper of a recipe! We enjoyed it with frozen vanilla yogurt, & it's also great that way but with the addition of a small drizzle of homemade butterscotch sauce! Next time I'll be doing this for company! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]

      What a great cake!!! It was so moist and had some many flavors that we loved! I loaded it with nuts in the batter as we love them in our cakes. I served our first servings with vanilla ice cream and then we had some with whip cream on top and both ways are out of this world! This is a must try!
