This pineapple upside-down cheesecake recipe by Delish on YouTube is simple and uses a boxed cake mix. This is a sweet dessert for those that have a sweet tooth and want to satisfy two different cravings. The idea of combining these two together makes it look like a big ice cream sandwich cake, but I think it would complement each other well with the flavors. I am amazed at how thick the cake slice ism and I’m sure it’s rich and decadent.
