Tips

Pineapple Upside Down cake

Pineapple Upside Down cake

I purchased a Duncan Hines Pineapple cake mix to make an Upside down pineapple cake and was surprised that there wasn't a receipe on the box to make an upside down cake! I came to your website to get the measurements for the ingredients (brown sugar, margarine and pineapple). That worked out fine but it would have been quicker if the receipe was on the box. By the way, the cake was delicious!


Don't Melt Butter or Margarine

Don't Melt Butter or Margarine

When using butter or margarine don't melt, just bring to room temp., you will have a lighter, tastier cake not flat! Enjoy!
