My husbands favorite cake is pineapple upside down cake and I never make it so for Valentine's Day I decided to make him one. I found this recipe on No Biggie and he loved it!
This recipe uses fresh pineapple instead of canned pineapple...makes all the difference in the world!
The batter covers up all the delicious goodness of fresh pineapple and brown sugar and butter.
So moist and delicious!
A little black and white with pink for Valentines Day :)
