Pineapple Upside Down Cake

A Slice of Cake and a Cup of Coffee

Today is National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day. We celebrate it every year on the 20th of April.

This cake became popular in America until after 1903. The cakes were traditionally made in cast iron skillets.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a very satisfying dessert that you can enjoy with a cup of coffee. If you'd like to make one, line the bottom of a cake pan with pineapple rings and then place a cherry in the center of each ring followed by a butter and sugar mixture.

Finally, the cake batter is poured over the pineapples and baked.
The best part happens when the cake is done. That is when the pan is turned upside down onto a platter, revealing a masterpiece that is both amazing and delicious.
Don't forget, if you save the top slice with the foliage still attached, you can turn that top piece into a very attractive houseplant.
