Pineapple Upside Down Cake

In honor of National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day, I made one for the very first time! I’ve always thought about making one. In fact I’ve always wanted to but just never did. I love the way they look and there is something sort of nostalgic and 1950s about a pineapple upside down cake. So you would think they’d be like my favorite cake to make… Maybe they will be???

So here’s my recipe in honor of the day!

2 Tablespoons melted butter

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 Tablespoon water

Mix together and pour into the bottom of a greased 9” cake pan. Top with slices of canned pineapple and maraschino cherries.
