Copycat Cheesecake Factory Pineapple Upside-Down Cheesecake

Copycat Cheesecake Factory Pineapple Upside-Down Cheesecake, two layers of buttery pineapple upside-down cake stuffed with pineapple cheesecake, just like the restaurant… but homemade!

Oooooh boy… you know we love our cheesecakes. I have posted many a cheesecake recipe. But, normally it’s all about what Jeremy likes *eye roll*

…. but yesterday it was my birthday so it has been all about what I likes. So, I wanted a massive dessert for my birthday… is that a crime?! My favorite cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory of all time is their Pineapple Upside-Down Cheesecake. It’s a lightly flavored pineapple cheesecake layered between two buttery pineapple upside-down cakes. It’s Heaven, basically.

    Hi! Is there a way to bypass letting it cool down in the oven for 5 hours?

      I honestly don’t know, I have only made it this way. If you try another way and it works, I would love to know, thanks!

    I’m attempting to make this right now actually. Do you know if you can bake both the cheesecake as well as the cake the night before and assemble the next day?

      When I made this I made the cheesecake the day before, then let the pineapple cakes cool completely. It should be fine to make them both ahead of time! I hope you love it, it was soooo good!

    Do you also add the pineapple to the bottom cake layer just like you do on the top layer?

    So just made the Pineapple upside down cake, looks good, smells good. Can’t wait for his party tonight. He loves Pineapple upside down cake and Cheesecake. So this should be a win, win situation. The only thing I did different is I made some homemade caramel rum topping to drizzle on the pieces after sliced if they want it. I know gilding the lily here but sounded good?

    Do I need to do a water bath or wrap foil around the spring form pan?

    Was the cake supposed to be dense? It was kinda like fruit cake. Still very good and everybody loved it but I’ve never had pineapple upside down cake that wasn’t fluffy. Maybe I’m just used to box cake mix for them

    this turned out amazing! one question, does it make a difference to assemble and then refrigerate until dinner time??

      Yay! I’m so glad it turned out good. I think refrigerating for a while before cutting in will definitely help. If the cheesecake layer gets warm it might get kind of soft and mushy.

    This is my favorite flavor at The Cheesecake Factory…actually, I should’ve said, WAS. I found out a month ago it’s no longer on the menu. I was heartbroken. Thank you for your recipe.
