Pineapple Upsidedown Cake

My first attempt at pineapple upside down cake went pretty well. It took me a little while to find a recipe that didn't need to be baked in a cast iron skillet.I would love to try that eventually, but didn't have the time right then. This was a very good cake. The cake itself was nice and moist and soft.And the pinapple and cherries were very good. I like the way that the syrup misture oozed into the cake a little bit but not so much that every bite was a syrupy gooey mess. I don't think that I have ever had this that I remember, so my first experience was a very good one. I wasn't expecting the syrupy glaze stuff to be so good. And let me tell you, I was so scared to flip that thing over. I get so frustrated when I work really hard on something and then I mess up the presentation. This cake was excellent and I would definitely make it again some time. Delectable!!


  1. Hi - I'm a friend of your aunt's and I just wanted to encourage you in doing this blog. Great idea and I wish you well! My friends and I do one of our own, and I live with a gal who is getting ready to go to culinary school - a pastry program, like you're hoping to do.

    I'd love to see you include the recipes you use as you go.

    Have fun!

  2. I would post the recipe for this except for the fact that I don't remember which one I used.Sorry. Where is she going for the program?Your blog is really cool. I really like it.

  3. The French Culinary Institute in New York. And I'm glad you like our food blog! I'll keep checking yours for ideas, too.
