I’m a little behind at recording my baking projects here. Last weekend was my husband’s birthday, and he requested pineapple upside-down cake, without cherries.
Easy enough! There are lots of recipes for this kind of cake out there, and I’m sure most are good. It’s actually a fairly easy cake, and I chose a skillet cake recipe just because it seemed fun and slightly different. It also called for several tablespoons of rum, which sounded great to me.
I mostly followed the recipe–I think I added some cinnamon and clove in addition to the cardamom that was called for. Now that I’ve made it, I also think I could have used more pineapple and been a little more strategic about their placement. Overall, though, this was a very good recipe as-is, and I would bake again. I used fresh pineapple and it was super duper tasty for several days.
