About this recipe: This cake is super-easy to make and quick to throw together. It's moist, sweet, sticky and packed full of pineapple and walnuts. Enjoy as a dessert or with a big mug of tea or coffee.
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... - 31 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 10 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The cake tasted fine, but the topping ruined it. There is way too much of it, and it weighed down the cake so much that there were holes everywhere. My husband wouldn't try it just based on apperance. You could probably skip the topping all together, or cut in in half at LEAST and it would be better. I'm dissapointed that more than likely, I'll be tossing the rest of the cake. - 16 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
