      • Hi, Lucy! Do you mean you’re interested in how many cans to use instead of a pineapple? The answer would be somewhere near 7 or 8 cans (8-ounce cans) but in the end, it’s a matter of taste. So feel free to make changes according to your taste. For example, we could’ve easily added even more pineapple for a juicier experience.

    • It depends, Kate. It depends on the depth of the batter. If the batter in your pans has the same height/thickness as ours (some 2 inches) you can use the same cooking time as we did. If yours is shallower, consider decreasing the time; if, on the other hand, it’s thicker, increase it. You have to do some testing and keep an eye on it.
