Pineapple Upsidedown Cake

This cake was easy to make in our vacation condo. We used what we had left for groceries. There were only seven ingredients in it. The ingredients were flour, sugar, baking powder, pineapple juice, cinnamon, coconut milk and pineapple slices. You may need some cooking spray or coconut oil to rub on the inside on the pan to prevent the cake from sticking.
