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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Haven't tasted it yet, but just a heads up for those who try it. Haven't tasted it yet, but just a heads up for those who try it. It took 45-55 minutes to bake it, not 30 minutes as instruced. Even though I had tested it with toothpick, it came out clean and only when I turned it upside down on plate did I realize it wasn't done. I put it back in cake pan and baked it for 20 more minutes. Haven't tried it yet, the top (which was the bottom) looks good, but am glad no one will be seeing the original top of the cake as it came apart when I took it out of the pan the first time. Also, I had to get on line for nutritional info. It is not supplied in "Food and Family" where my husband found the recipe. Glad those I plan on serving it to are all close friends and family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was very excited to try this recipe. 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from this recipe was very easy to make and turned out looking perfect. 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from looked easy, was easy, but the bake time was way off, baked as directed 30 min. looked easy, was easy, but the bake time was way off, baked as directed 30 min. center of cake was not even slightly cooked, outer edges were baked through nicely, since top of cake browned nicely and toothpick inserted in the middle appeared to come out clean I removed from oven, it was only when I tried to invert onto a serving platter that I discovered the whole middle of the cake was uncooked and couldn't be salvaged, what a mess

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! OMG! Beyond ahmazing! I absolutly loved this recipe and the rest of my family enjoyed it as well. I tweeked the cake mix a bit by adding less than 1/4 of vegetable oil when it normaly called for 1/3 cup. I also substituted the 3 eggs it called for with the remaining juice from the pineapples. This recipe was oustanding and reminded me of my mother's cake she taught me how to make. I cannot wait to eat the leftover cake tmrw!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from As others said cooking time is definitely not enough. As others said cooking time is definitely not enough. The orange jello mix made the cake too orange and the texture was awful. The middle of the cake stuck the to pan even though I sprayed like the recipe called for. Over all this was a citrusy orange disaster for me. The only plus side was the yellow cake that has a slight pineapple taste and the cherries. Other than that my cake looked nothing like the picture,

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

This cake is very easy to make and has a wonderful flavor to it and it is a nice light cake for summer time. My whole family loved it. I will make this again. I found that you can also use crushed pineapples in place of the rings,the cherry's you can chop up and place them on top of the crushed pineapple.
