This brings back memories. My grandmother and my mother did make this cake. I remember when it was flipped over, still warm from the pan and the pineapple rings with a cherry center would glisten in the sauce. This is interesting using chunk style pineapple instead. I'm not keen on kiwi so I'd go the traditional way and leave that out. This is an old fashioned and delicious dessert. Easy to make too!

oh, how I love pineapple upside down cake! It is such an old-fashioned classic dessert. I won't use kiwi in my recipe, but everything else will stay the same. I can't wait to serve it with ice cream and a hot cup of coffee. Yummy! I'm thinking I'll make it Easter weekend.
