I made: Pineapple upside-down cake!

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.
