Pineapple Inside Out Cake

This is a recipe from my mom's kitchen, and it has been one of my favorites since I was a little girl! I've discovered that the best thing bout it (aside from how delicious it is) is how EASY it is! It's BARELY harder than a cake mix, and it tastes so much better!

Here is the recipe,

2 cups flour
1.5 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 lb can crushed pineapple + juice
2 eggs

Mix together by hand. (No mixers allowed!) Pour in to an ungreased 9x13 pan.

Then, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts OR pecans and sprinkle over batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

For the topping, you need,

1.5 sticks of butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Combine and boil for 3 minutes. AS soon as the cake is done pour over the hot cake.

Prepare to be amazed!
