So this is what I baked yesterday. yes, it's your delectable pineapple upside down cake. I just doctored up a coffee cake recipe from my trusty 1950's era Betty Crocker picture cookbook with some canned pineapple rings. I opted not to use those icky maraschino cherries. I don't know what people see in them. Yeah, they're pretty, but they taste wrong, totally unlike a real cherry ought to taste.
I think it's only the second upside down cake I've ever made. The last one was apricot made with fresh apricots off our tree when we lived in California. That was over 15 years ago. I think I won't wait as long to make another of these pineapple cakes. It's very tasty. There are only 2 pieces left.
