I will have to pass this on to my sister for her husband. He loves pineapple upside down cake but he is the only one. With this recipe he could get his cake any time he wanted and it would be just for him. The big baby would love that.

What a cool idea! I'm going to try this but would like to know what size tuna cans to use before I do. Sounds yummy and can hardly wait.

Just use the regular size cans. Make sure they are greased well :)

That sounds so good and quick. I usually bake from scratch but this sounds like a quick fix, when pressed for time.

I hope you like it. I think it would work great with any kind of cake mix just take away the pineapple, melted butter and brown sugar.

aren't tuna cans made out of aluminum? Is it safe to bake with it? I think your recipe sounds fabulous!

I love the thought of individual cakes. No messy pans and the cut mark in the cake. The pineapple ring with a cherry would be absolutly beautiful!

This my fav. kind of cake! I will have to give it a try! I will probably use this instead of cupcakes sometime.And i agree it would work for any kind of cake. Cupcakes are fine, but an individual cake would be even better! Thank you so much for the idea! I will even use the idea for meatloaf and other casserole type meals. It would be easier to freeze them for future use. I wonder if pineapple up-side-down cake would freeze well!?
