furthermore, i would also like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect pineapple upside down cake recipe. firstly, for this recipe, i would heavily recommend using fresh and juicy pineapple slices. yet i have used canned pineapple slices as i did not have access to the fresh one. the canned ones are sliced to the same size and hence it helps to stack and arrange in the baking tray. secondly, the most preferred cake batter for this recipe is the plain vanilla-flavoured cake or pineapple flavoured batter. do not try to attempt the cake with any other cake flavour as it may overpower the pineapple flavour. lastly, try to arrange the pineapple slices in a symmetric way so that it looks attractive. also fill in the gap with bright coloured cherry to make it even more attractive.
