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.
1 1/3 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix with an electric mixer on low until combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
Carefully spoon batter into cake pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or till pick comes out clean.
Let cool on rack for 5 minutes and then invert onto serving plate. Serve warm.
