    Lennie's Note:

    Serve this at your next dinner party; just don't expect any to be left! One tablespoon of rum, mixed in with the maple syrup, is a nice addition.

      My Hubby and I loved this my Mother not so much. She just didn't like it because she was comparing it to traditional pineapple upside down cake and this cake is different. But we loved it and it's gooey topping. Yum! We baked it in our square cast-iron pan.

      It tasted great. Otherwise, it was a waste of time and labor and ingredients. Soaking wet, rose four inches, fell three, can't cut into pieces, doesn't unmold, has to be bowled after scooping up. Sorry; but you should have tried your recipe first.
