    Warning, this cake is soooo tasty that it is hard to eat one piece! But, I made cupcakes too - so cut the calories into thirds because you are getting 36 servings instead of 12! - 3/29/09

    This was so easy and so yummy. Had it for a birthday with reddi whip and light vanilla ice cream and there were no leftovers. Serving size is very generous and satisfying. I used a 9 x 13 glass pan sprayed with butter non stick and only needed 25-30 min and was perfectly cooked. - 5/6/09

    I made these into cupcakes - i got 32 out of the recipe and then topped them with a mix of cool whip free & 1/2 pkg of cook & serve coconut pudding, ended up being 75 calories per cupcake! Yummy! First baked good in 2 weeks. I'm a happy girl today! - 4/19/10

    This recipe doesn't mention the interesting reaction you get when you mix the pineapple with the mix.
    Got several compliments on this cake even when it was amongst "made from scratch" competition.
    Think I'll try lemon next. - 6/30/13

  • Just an FYI-- a recipe is "a set of instructions for preparing a particular dish, including a list of the ingredients required". There are many recipes that include a boxed mixed or other prepared food. If you use a recipe calling for sausage (for example) it is not necessary to first get a hog. - 5/10/14

  • I usually pour some of the juice out when making this depending on the size box of cake mix. This is so good its definitely hard to stop at one serving though! Making the smaller cupcakes is great for portion control as I could eat the entire cake myself - 5/8/14

  • I did this, saw it on pinterest. Super good. Strong too, so you aren't in much danger of overdoing it. My favorite part is the top, gets kind of a sweet chewy crust. Might try sprinkling coconut over top next time I make it for guests. Psst, fat free. - 6/30/13

  • The picture shows the cupcakes as "filled," and if you mix the pineapple in the cake mix it isn't separated like shown.

It tasted like a light version of pineapple upside-down cake and was rich enough that it didn't need any kind of topping. My husband, who doesn't like any kind of "healthy" dessert, absolutely loved it as well.
