I have only tried making a upside down cake once and it was a disaster. I don't know what I did wrong. Will try again using your recipe.

Wasnt sure what a pineapple upside down cake recipe was so looked it up. Here is what wikipedia has to say about it. Thought would share it with all - " In traditional American cooking, an upside-down cake is a cake usually made in a pan with a curved bottom then, once cooked, turned over and allowed to set, and is eaten upside-down. Usually, chopped fruits such as pineapples and cherries are placed at the bottom of the pan before the batter is poured in, so that they form a decorative topping once the cake is inverted."
