    Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

    I feel so silly asking this question because I saw no one else had the same issue. I turned the cake upside down as soon as it came out, but I did it on a serving tray, and all the brown sugar/butter mix ran all over the counter. Next time I will turn into another large pan, but am I the only one this happened too?

    Check the reviews. Several people described how they turned it out.

    Thanks everyone! Luckily the cake stayed together, but the juices ran down onto the floor. The dogs loved it! I am going to turn the cake out onto a slightly larger baking dish, so I don't lose the wonderful juices.

    I'm not sure why you had so much liquid/syrup left in the bottom of the pan when you removed the cake.
    You did drain the pineapple and cherries well before placing them in the pan, on top of the butter/brown sugar syrup, right? icon_smile.gif
    The melted butter and brown sugar should have formed a very thick syrup, which forms a sort of crust as the cake bakes. icon_confused.gif

    Glad you enjoyed your cake in spite of the syrup mishap.

    OMG, this happened to me. When I pulled it out of the oven, the syrup was free-flowing. Speed dialing to the people hosting Thanksgiving as to what else to bring. I was mortified. It didn't take long, and I kept coming back trying to figure out what I had done wrong...and lo and behold...after sitting for a short time, the cake had absorbed the liquid, creating an amazing PUD cake.

    So you are not alone... icon_biggrin.gif

    So good to know I am not alone! Yes, I did drain everything, but maybe not as well as I thought. I also thought that maybe if I would have left the cake sit for a five minutes, that the syrup would absorb back into the cake. I am anxious to try again because I think the flavor was amazing!

    I think we have both come to the same conclusion. Let the cake sit for a while. Allow it to soak up all that goodness, because it is worth it. I've not seen it in a recipe, but any PUD I make will get to rest, and enjoy its awesomeness icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    For some clarification...I served it in the dish I baked it in. I never attempted to move it to another dish. Just saw that the syrup had not incorporated. After having my little cow over it, just kept coming back. It firmed up nicely.
