A lot of people don’t think of cooking desserts in a crock pot. I’ve made both brownies and pecan pie in the crock pot. I like that you have more leeway with the cooking time when using a slow cooker. It’s very hard to burn anything.

This Slow Cooker Pineapple Upside Down Cake takes approximately 2 hours to cook. Spray the bottom of the crock pot well with cooking spray and you shouldn’t have any trouble getting the cake out in one piece. The cake is done when it pulls away from the sides a little and is firm in the middle. Let it cool about 15 minutes and then invert it onto a platter.

Mine only takes about 2 hours to cook, but depending on your crock pot, it could take up to 3 hours.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a very sweet dessert with plenty of pineapple flavor. If you want it with a little less sweetness, cut down some on the brown sugar.

Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a large dollop of whipped cream.

  1. I don’t know what happened. I did everything to the letter on this recipe and I ended up with burnered pineapples and cake that isn’t cooked through. Very disappointed. It looked so good. I’m going to guess that this recipe is for a much bigger crock pot than mine and I should have 1/2 the recipe. πŸ™

  2. Upside Down Pineapple Cake was one of my favorite desserts that my mother made when I grew up. I’ve been wanting to try it in the crockpot, so thank you for the recipe. ?

    I just discovered your blog today and couldn’t stop reading. Every recipe looks great, and I love reading about your grandparents and great-grandmother with the chocolate meringue pie. Oh my goodness! That sounds just like me and my grandmother who made the best chocolate meringue pies. Not many people make them anymore – and they’re SO good!!

    1. I’m so glad you found my blog Angie and thank you for taking the time to comment. Hope you enjoy the slow cooker version of Pineapple Upside Down Cake if you get to try it. I love that you had a grandmother who made chocolate meringue pies too. πŸ™‚
