pineapple upside-down cake

Introduction

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a throwback to the 1920s. A time when canned pineapple was all the rage. One look at this cake and you can see why it was so popular. It is lovely, glistening slices of sweet and sticky caramelized pineapple sitting happily on top of a fluffy yellow cake. A Pineapple Upside Down Cake begs to be served warm from the oven, with or without a dollop of softly whipped cream.
