Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I love pineapple. I love cake. Pineapple upside down cake is the perfect mixture of both and oh so good! Especially when I make it with lots of extra pineapple!! Traditional pineapple upside down cake is made with cherries, but I don’t like cherries, so I just add more pineapple in place of the cherries. Did I mention I love pineapple?!
