Try Jackfruit as a Pineapple Substitute

My daughter is allergic to pineapple, so much that she has to carry an epi-pen if she accidentally consumes it. We have found a great substitute. It tastes about the same, but has a slightly denser texture than pineapple. It's canned "jack fruit". You can get it in Asian or International markets. We have tried it in lime gelatin, and it tastes almost like pineapple without the allergy fear. I'm sure it would be delicious in upside down "jack fruit" cake.

Source: We saw huge fresh jack fruit in the store and didn't want to purchase that much, so we decided to try the canned version. We were surprised how much it tasted like pineapple and have been substituting with it ever since.
