“On my way to a Hawaiian-themed party, all I could think of was Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The recipes did not seem Hawaiian enough. The additions of coconut, banana and macadamia nuts brought the tropics to the recipe. I can't tell you how many people raved at the party. The whole cake is gone.” - by Kim
Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch cake
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Pour the melted butter into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.
- Arrange 8 pineapple rings in two rows in the baking dish.
- Sprinkle the macadamia nuts, half of the flaked coconut, and 2 chopped pineapple slices between the rows of pineapple rings.
- Place a maraschino cherry in each pineapple ring, then scatter the remaining cherries over the coconut mixture. Set baking dish aside.
- Whisk together the pineapple juice, coconut water, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the mashed banana, yellow cake mix, and remaining flaked coconut until well blended.
- Slowly pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then run a paring knife between the cake and the edge of the pan.
- Cover the cake pan with a large serving plate, and invert it to tip the cake out of the pan and onto the plate with the pineapple slices showing.

Cookin Up A Storm
"Consider yourself warned. This cake is really rich and should be served in small amounts - with just a little bit of barely sweetened whipped cream. I did use yellow cake from scratch as I am not to..." See moreo fond of mixes. My partner who loves all things pineapple, banana, coconut and macadamia nut was in heaven. Luckily, I had the brilliant idea of baking this up in two pans so that he could take one to work with him as we would never be able to eat it all ourselves. Apparently, it disappeared during the morning coffee break. I will likely be making this again."
