Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We love the old fashion favorites from our childhoods and our children's childhoods. Now, of course, we are making them and enjoying them with our grandchildren. Let make Pineapple Upside Down Cake, it is, after all, Sunday dinner time!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake, an old fashioned favorite.

Cooks wisdom:  This cake is best when freshly baked.

Very Pineapple Upside Down Cake
serves 8

1 20 oz juice-packed crushed pineapple - drain well and reserve juice
1/4 c butter
2/3 c brown sugar

1/3 c shortening, we used coconut oil
1 c sugar
1 egg
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/3 c flour
3/4 c reserved pineapple juice (original recipe called for milk)

Melt butter in the bottom of a 9-inch pan, while the oven preheats. Swirl butter in the bottom of the pan to coat evenly, sprinkle with the brown sugar, evenly top with the drained pineapple.

Beat the coconut oil and sugar, add egg, beat until fluffy. Add the flour, salt, soda and baking powder to the bowl along with 1/2 or more of the juice. Beat until smooth.  Add remaining juice, beat for an additional minute. Carefully pour over the pineapple.

Bake 35-45 minutes or until done in your oven. Let rest 10 minutes, loosen the edges of the cake, turn out onto a serving plate. Let cool completely.

Serve with a swirl of whipped cream and a cherry if desired!
