Go and make it now…. Yes make this Pineapple Upside Down Cake now. Why? Well I can give you if not millions but at least hundreds and thousands of reasons to justify my passion for this sort of retro love. But before I start let me warn you that I can get little emotional or in simple term little crazy when I feel I have to justify my passion, so you can stop listening to me anytime you feel you are done OK. But I still will give you few reasons why you should indulge into this sinful affair. Let’s start, you should bake this because…..
You love this cake,
It is incredibly simple and insanely delicious,
It reminds of grand-mom home,
It is an absolute no-fuss rustic cake,
Let me warn you before you flow in emotions that Pineapple Upside down Cake is really not the chic or stylish cake if that is what you are looking for. It is definitely not the cake from the ramp of Paris fashion week neither it is the cake from the cover page of Vogue (but I won’t be shock if it is there), rather it is a beautiful and delicious cake with a rustic feel. This cake is more like the one from heirloom recipe highly treasured and enjoyed….. An Affair to Remember!!
This cake really is a well balanced symphony of flavors. Addition of little pineapple syrup really enhances the flavor of the cake and also helps in keeping it moist. I like to bake this in Iron skillet just to add to the nostalgic theme of the cake but feel free to use cake pan. Also I like my cake to be little thin so I’m using a 10 inch skillet but this recipe will work just fine in 9 inch cake pan and will give you slightly thick cake. You can add pecans along with pineapple and cherries if you want to go deeper into the old fashion way.
