Sweet and tangy; we loved our first recipe, Teriyaki Chicken. It was the perfect meal to serve over a bed of rice, but we wish we would have added some...

    My husband really enjoyed this. I followed the recipe exactly… well not exactly. I picked up Pineapple Tidbits instead so I just layed them to make a circle! The cake was the most moist Pineapple Upside Down Cake ever! But, I did have to cook the 3 full hours. The edges got a little browned and crunchy but that was my favorite part! I’m sure this will go in our “have to have dessert” section! Thanks CrockinGirls for another great recipe!

    Instead of the milk try using the pineapple juice – tastes great!

    You use the milk in Step four when you’re making the batter. Just use milk rather than the water directed on the box. :))

  8. Kimber

    Thanks! I’m hoping to make this later this afternoon. Question….while milk is noted as a replacement for water in the ingredient list, it’s not mentioned in the directions. Should I substitute milk for water when making the cake batter? :)

    Kimber, we found our mix at Walmart…I think it was Duncan Hines. If your store doesn’t carry it they may order it if you ask!

  10. Kimber

    Where can I find pineapple cake mix?

  11. Omayra

    The difference we do here with the pineapple upside down cake instead of oil we use melted butter. This has been the way my mother has done for years and it makes the most amazing flavor. She also pours in the juice of the pineapple with the butter. wow… now I want my mamas cake! lol

    Denae, Not real sure about this one…we may need to come up to Colorado and test some of the recipes…lol. I would try to make it as is and if any adjustments to see if any adjustments need to be made. If you make adjustments on other cakes you make you might try doing the same.

  13. Denae

    Can anyone tell me if I need to make adjustments to this since I am at 6200 ft? I really want to make it but I am guessing there is some adjustments that need to be made.

    BTW, Jacquita we’ve only been able to find the GE at Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/GE-6-Quart-Digital-Slow-Cooker/12442589

    Sorry for the confusion, Shannon. 1 – 1 1/2 cups should be just right. You want to cover the bottom of your crock with it.

    OH MY GOSH!!!!! I baked this Pineapple Upside Down Cake in my Hamilton oval Crock-Pot for guests yesterday. I was a little leery of doing it my crock-pot (I have trying to buy the GE you use….every one is out of them) but decided to go for. It turned out beautiful and the taste was out of this world. My guests loved it and asked for the recipe. I didn’t have any ice cream or cool whip to serve with it. But the cake alone was so moist and delicious that no one missed having ice cream.
    Girls keep Crockin…I love your recipes.

    Hey girls, just a little confused. The directions I printed out when you posted them on your website says 1 small bag of brown sugar. The directions above say 1 cup. Which amount do I use? I’m hoping to make this tonight to use for a tailgate party tomorrow.

    Hey Kim…a small bag of brown sugar is 16 oz, so 2 cups.

  20. Kim

    What if you have a big bag of brown sugar so how much do you use a cup or more than a cup, just wondering.

  21. Stephanie

    Made it today. It was beautiful AND delish!

    BTW,I also added pecans pieces to the cake mix, because my hubby wanted them in it to cut the sweetness.
