The Best Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe + A Pretty Sweet Giveaway!

Every year for my dad’s birthday, he always asks my mom to make one simple dessert: pineapple upside-down cake. He doesn’t want a chocolate cake or a funfetti treat. He just really wants a pineapple upside-down cake. (Which is totally fine with my mom, as it’s one of the best easy cake recipes ever.)

So, needless to say, I’m a bit of a pineapple upside-down cake recipe conoisseur. We had to go through quite a few cake recipes in order to settle on the best one (which currently happens to be from Betty Crocker, I believe). But, we’re always looking for new recipes to try.

One of the recipes I have on my list to make for my dad is the gooey pineapple upside-down cake recipe below. It’s perfectly sweet and has such a wonderful tropical flavor. You’d never believe that it’s actually a pretty healthy cake recipe just by looking at it.

Guilt-Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Guilt-Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake
By Natvia
Serves 8



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a round ring cake pan. Line the base of the pan with parchment paper.
  3. Drain the pineapple, reserving 2 Tablespoons juice. Cut the pineapple slices in half and set aside.
  4. Drizzle the honey over the base of the prepared cake pan. Then, arrange the pineapple slices on top of the honey.
  5. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and Natvia for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
  6. Add flour and reserved pineapple juice to the butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Stir to combine.
  7. Once combined, spread the cake batter over the pineapple slices in the cake pan.
  8. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until your cake tester comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
