I made it with the corn syrup and it was sooooooooo good. I tripled the recipe and I had one and my husband & his friend ate the rest of them.

Brown Sugar can be substituted for the corn syrup, spray the custard cup and put a piece of wax paper in the bottom of the custard cup sprinkle the brown sugar, put in the pineapple and cherry then pour the cake batter on top. I don't like the biscuit.

Didn't like these when made with biscuits. Got a box of Jiffy white cake mix, made according to the instructions, omitted the corn syrup (too sweet), and used 6 custard cups. The extras froze beautifully and only had to be warmed in the micro when defrosted. Delish!

@ lutzlady.. I have made pineapple upsidedown cake from scratch from the Better Homes & Garden cookbook and never used corn syrup. Try making them as the recipe states, just omit the corn syrup.

Corn syrup is not the best thing for kids.... what can be substituted -- I would still
like to use the biscuit.

It looks neat but I still like Pillsbury's cake mix better. And I don't like maraschino cherries because they give me heartburn but sometimes I substitute a strawberry or pecan half in the hole of the pineapple slice.

Delicious! We left out the cherry, but it was still very good!

My Sister-in-law served these to us the other night.
I loved them and will use this recipe often. Especially since there are usually only my other half and myself.
Serve hot with vanilla ice cream. Wonderful.

What a wonderful, quick dessert to make for family or guests. The biscuit actually takes on the taste of moist cake when the syrup flows over it so no need to worry. If you didn't tell people it was a biscuit, they would never guess. The correct size custard cups are important so it bakes up right.
I'm a veteran baker and was concerned after reading other reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. I plan to make these for my Irish relatives arriving soon. The children will love them as much as the adults and I will have plenty of time to visit instead of spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

Seems to me, that IF you don't like the biscuit taste, SCRATCH Pineapple cakes are so easy, you can; AND I DO, stir the cake together w/a spoon*!* I've tried using a mixer and it only makes them tough!?! The Real Deal is so easy peachy from Scratch and they only make 6-8 slices, great for breakfast the next day, DON'T REFRIGERATE that it'll be gone in 3 days? What's the rub??? Forget the Caro Syrup for Real Cake! Just use a wee splash of Pineapple Juice - Not Much*
