My Very Own Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I wish I could say that I had this idea all on my own… I got it from a friend at church and I am so glad she shared!

All you do is make pineapple upside down cakes in tuna cans. Yes, tuna cans! Just be sure to wash them first… tuna and cake just don’t mesh well. ;o)

Here is my recipe that I love for Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

The cake itself will probably make about 8 cakes but I only had 5 slices of pineapple. The brown sugar mixture for the bottom of the cakes will have to be increased to make that many cakes, as the amount the recipe makes was enough for the 5 cakes I made.

Just follow the instructions exactly, only divide everything up into the tuna cans…

Let cool on rack for about 5 minutes, invert onto plates and serve warm


  1. I thought that cans were coated with plastic, sometimes BPA. Wouldn't it leech into the food?

    1. BPA comes from the white plastic lining placed in some cans.
