My youngest son just discovered that he likes pineapple. I made a fruit salad with pineapple the other day and he asked about the “yellow chunks”, so I told him to give them a try. (I am lucky that he is willing to try new foods) He had one. Then another. After five or so pieces he announced, “Mommy, I love pineapple!” Now he has pineapples for snack time almost daily! Pineapples make him do the hula, that is for sure.

Do pineapples make you do the hula, too?

Dole Pineapple is the only canned pineapple with “Hula”; that sweet, exotic taste of the islands that adds fun and excitement to recipes and snacks. Dole Canned Pineapple dials up taste from boring into WOW! …it makes you want to hula.

Dole Pineapple provides an easy way to get more fruit into your diet and adds enjoyment to your day. Dole Pineapple includes the following perks, too:

  • Cut from the best pineapple on earth
  • Consistently sweet and juicy
  • Available in slices, chunks, tidbits, and crushed for any recipe or snack need
  • All natural fruit, rich in vitamin C

When I think of pineapple and “hula” I immediately think of a pineapple upside-down cake recipe we posted last year that is absolutely delicious and would be paired with Dole Pineapple perfectly.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Recipe



1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3 (8 ounce) cans Dole Pineapple Slices, undrained
10 pecan halves
11 maraschino cherries, halved
2 large eggs, separated
1 egg yolk
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar


1. Melt butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over low heat. Sprinkle brown sugar in skillet. Remove from heat.

2. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Set juice aside. Cut pineapple slices in half, reserving 1 whole slice.

3. Place whole pineapple slice in center of skillet. Arrange 10 pineapple pieces, spoke fashion, around whole slice in center of skillet. Place a pecan half and a cherry half between each piece of pineapple. Place a cherry half in center of whole pineapple slice.

4. Arrange remaining pineapple pieces, cut side up, around sides of skillet. Place a cherry half in center of each piece of pineapple around sides of skillet.

5. Beat 3 egg yolks at high speed with an electric mixer until thick and pale; gradually add 1 cup granulated sugar, beating well.

6. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; stir well. Add to egg mixture alternately with reserved 1/4 cup pineapple juice. Stir in vanilla.

7. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed until stiff peaks form; fold beaten egg whites into batter. Pour batter over pineapple in skillet.

8. Bake at 350-f degrees for 45-50 minutes or until cake is set. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes. Invert cake onto a serving plate. Scrape any remaining glaze from skillet onto cake. Cut into wedges to serve.
