Hawaiian Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Rating: Unrated 32
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.

My mom has always made this cake during rhubarb season. It's the yummiest rhubarb cake I've ever had! It's especially good after it's been chilled in the refrigerator. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
