This is the best pineapple upside-down cake! My mother has the same recipe in a book from the 1970's and the same recipe is still available/posted on the Golden Circle website currently. Golden Circle is an Australian brand and canned from Australian grown products Sadly -this recipe I have not yet tried to make as gluten-free.
