My mom always makes pineapple upside-down cake from scratch for birthdays with the white cake and then the sugar and pineapple rings on top. This cake tastes very similar, but it is so much easier. The only thing missing was the maraschino cherries. My parents, my sister, and I really enjoyed it late one night, while it was fresh from the oven. I’m sure it would be great with ice cream or whipped cream on top too…
My husband and I really enjoyed this and it was so easy to make. I didn’t have any walnuts so I decided to use a crumble topping from an apple crisp recipe and it turned out great. Also I realized that I was out of evaporated milk so I used sweetened condensed milk in place of that and the sugar. I will probably continue to make it this way because it was excellent.
I made this cake for a family get together and it got great raves from the kids as well as the adults. I doubled the recipe, thankfully, because the hostess couldn’t wait to have the leftovers for breakfast! I used the condensed milk over the top as others had suggested. I think this cake would be good with either milk. It would probably be good without either one, too, for those of you wathing your weight. I added some cinnamon chips to this cake batter to give it a little pizzaz- good choice! This cake doesn’t have a strong pineapple taste, which I liked. Overall it was just a yummy coffee cake great for a get together. I think I will try this next time with strawberries and whipped cream! And maybe I will replace the white sugar with brown. This is a very versatile recipe- the combinations are endless!
This cake is awesome. The moist spongy texture and buttery flavor are just what I was craving. After moving to the UK 4 months ago I was missing a taste of home and this cake hit the spot.. I felt like I was back home in Texas in my Granny’s kitchen. My fiancee also thought this cake was delish. Oh.. and our flat smells awesome.
I actually call my grandmother “Granny” so I made this for her for that reason. It was awesome! I ended up using vanilla creamer in place of the evaporated milk and it still turned out very well!
