“Quick and easy; tastes like pineapple upside-down cake. Coconut may be added to batter to make it taste like a pina colada cake.” - by alice
Original recipe yields 1 8-inch square cake
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
- Combine flour, white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Whisk egg, yogurt, canola oil, and vanilla extract in another bowl until smooth. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just blended. Add 1/3 cup reserved pineapple juice and fold in pineapple tidbits until batter is just mixed; pour into prepared baking dish.
- Stir pecans and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or completely cool.

And I thought the amount of the topping was perfect for the 8" coffee cake unlike the first reviewer. Next time, I may add some coconut as suggested and maybe even add a few chopped pecans to the cake. IMO this is a solid coffee cake recipe and a keeper."
"I also found that the middle was undercooked at 30 minutes (even though the toothpick appeared clean). That said, I did have to substitute crushed pineapple for tidbits, which might have made some dif..." See moreference but not that much. For the edges that were cooked, I would have described the flavor as somewhat bland. Maybe next time (if there is a next time), I would leave out the extra pineapple juice after draining. I thought the quantity of topping was just fine."
