PW’s final day found us making Pineapple Upside Down cake, which nearly did us in. When we were finishing the cake, we had to flip it over onto a plate, and nearly didn’t make it. We found ourselves laughing, saying, “Is this really going to be the recipe that does us in? Pineapple Upside Down cake.”
First you mix up all the ingredients and mix well.
Then, you take some butter (are you surprised) and some brown sugar and you let the sugar dissolve.
Don’t worry if you burn the brown sugar because the PW tells you not to stir because you don’t. You might have to start over. We did. That’s why we were concerned about the Pineapple Upside Down Cake doing us in.
Then you add the pineapples and the maraschino cherries, which I learned how to spell only this week when I was searching for them in the grocery store. I looked in five places: the baking aisle, the canned fruit section, the olive and pickle section (I’m not sure, it made sense in my head), then in the produce section per a woman’s suggestion, and finally the alcohol section, where I found martini olives…but no cherries! Finally, I asked a produce man, who helped me find the cherries, in the ICE CREAM end cap. I am not the smartest…
A close up shot. We started with one cherry per pineapple ring, but then Corelyn wanted to be a little more festive…
So we added another to each ring.
Then you add the batter to the pan…
Make sure to get it all…yum yum yum!
Delicious. This was moist, and tasted a smidge like pineapple, in the most delicious way possible.
