If you know me then you know I usually bake and cook from scratch.  However, occasionally, I find a "box" that I love and cannot match “made from scratch".  This recipe is one of those; an old-fashioned favorite, this Pineapple Upside Down Cake is just as fruity and moist as when my Mom made it. Create one today, it is so easy and so delicious!
