Altered ingredient amounts. Wonderful taste, and simplicity itself. We couldn't find a bakery that made Pineapple Upside-down Cake and this recipe was the best one we've tried. If you like too, add double the amount of brown sugar, butter and juice for the topping to really indulge yourself.  -  18 Jul 2008
