    Sharlene~W's Note:

    A traditional pineapple upside-down cake cooked in a cast-iron skillet. I guess you could use a regular cake pan as well. I found in an article on "skillet" recipes years ago--sounded strange, but it is very good.

      I agree with the others, this is a pretty dog gone good cake...Easy to make...When I make it again, I may cut back on the brown sugar...

      Wonderful cake!!!! Nice and moist and dense. I used whole wheat pastry flour and a springform pan instead of the cast-iron skillet. It worked great!! I kind of got scared at step 11 because I had thought on step 8 you were to mix in everything to the meringue at that point. It turned out great and I just ignored step 11. I love the ingredients of this with the sour cream and lemon zest, this will be my upside-down cake recipe from now on. Thanks!!!!

      So, this is how good this recipe is...I completely made a mess of it & it still worked out beautifully!First, I had no measuring cups (@ b/f's),so nothing was correct.I had baking soda,not powder.The mixing of the cream & dry ingredients was so sticky that the beaters wouldn't go through it.I kneaded it instead!Lol.Then I "folded" in the whites with my hands!I dumped it all in a bread pan, crossed my fingers & baked it for 1/2 an hour.It looked beautiful so took a bite.Yummy!
