Upside-Down Sunshine Cake

Upside-Down Sunshine Cake recipe
photo by:kraft
This just goes to show that tradition can be improved upon. A little orange flavor makes the pineapple sing in this classically moist and flavorful cake.

Simple to make and tastes great.
Made with pineapple jello and a little pineapple juice from can. All the comments about the orange jello scared me a bit. I also cooked the cake 45-50 minutes. My family loved it and couldn't get enough. The easiest upside down cake I've ever made
I was very excited to try this recipe. I love pineapple upside down cake! However, this was a little disappointing. The orange jello makes the top of this cake a NEON orange, very bright and like another poster said, kinda scary!! The taste was good, but it did not taste anything like pineapple upside down cake. The orange jello was very, very overpowering and that is all I could taste. Also, as others have stated, 30 minutes was not long enough cook time. After 30 minutes the center was still not even close to being baked. So, all in all this recipe was good, but not great. I probably won't make again, I would rather have traditional pineapple upside down cake, that way I can actually taste the pineapple and cherries.
This looked so good in your magazine and I made it for my ladies group luncheon.It was not good. The cake was very heavy and the jello you sprinkle on the bottom was kind of hard. I love all of your recipes but this one was a disappointment, but keep em coming!!
I was excited to try this recipe, but there were some concerns that you may want to be aware before starting this recipe. 1) As stated by others, 30 minutes is definitely not enough time; an additional 10 did help. 2) A 20 oz can of pineapple rings only yielded 10 rings - and with 10 cherries, that worked out well, only a 9x13 pan would take 12 so that every piece would have a pineapple and cherry. My middle section didn't have any pineapples (but I had extra cherries to put in there; otherwise,it'd have been plain). 3)The orange gelatin was strangely very, very bright, and kinda scary...O_o It doesn't look like THAT on the picture, so I'm not sure why mine turned out so orange...however, I'm an avid baker and cook often, and didn't make any mistakes in this experiment. =P Everything else was fine. Perhaps I'd try it with Lemon Jello instead of the Orange Jello if I were to try it again one day, but I might stick to the traditional recipes. Other than that, most of thei
I haven't baked in a long time and when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It was delicious!!! I plan on making one for coworkers and using the peaches instead. Very easy to make.
this sounded to yummy for breakfast - but didn't have pineapple rings, so I used crushed and drained well. I also didn't read all the directions first, so I added jello to the cake mix! oops! I added a glaze made from the juice of the pinapple -WHAT A HIT!!! a definite do over!
Tried the peach version and it was very good. Can't wait to try the pineapple. Very easy and it came out perfect. Everyone loved it!!
This was really easy to make and can't wait to try the peach version. My husband and I enjoyed this very much.
this recipe was very easy to make and turned out looking perfect. Sprayed a glass pan and had no sticking problems. However, I cooked for 30 mins and the center was still too moist. Cooked for another 10 minutes and it was better. When I inverted onto a platter, the center did sink in slightly. not sure what the exact cook time should be. Orange flavor seemed a little strong for me but the cool whip toned it down a bit. Would make again and maybe try some variations with cooking times and flavors.
