Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake created by Lavender Lynn

This cake is so easy to make and baking it in a cast iron skillet makes all the difference. It's a great cake to have when the weather gets warm.

ingredients

directions

  • Melt margarine in a LARGE cast iron skillet on top of stove. Stir in brown sugar. Place pineapple slices and cherries on top of the brown sugar mixture. Do not follow the directions on the cake mix. Instead, add the reserved pineapple juice to the mix along with 2 eggs and mix thoroughly. Spread the batter over the pineapple mixture in the skillet. Bake at 350 degrees for approixmately 25 minutes.
  • Use heavy hot pads to remove the skillet from the oven when done. While the cake is still hot, loosen the edge of the skillet with a knife and turn onto a serving plate. Let cool and enjoy!

    Super!! I made two of these to be auctioned at a benefit. They went for much much MUCH more than I had ever dreamed. The cake rose so beautifully and came out of the cast iron skillet like a charm. Thanks for a simple to make wonderful recipe that really made me look good.

    Excellent! I used no-salt butter instead of margarine (I didn't have enough margarine on hand) and when I first turned it out on the serving plate I thought the brown sugar topping was going to be a little mushy, but when it cooled down it was just perfect. Came out of the skillet very slick and was absolutely gorgeous. I added a couple of tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice to the cake mix which pinked it up a little and helped carry the cherry flavor throughout. Thanks!

    Great cake! So impressive yet so easy to make! I used 8" cake pans and got 2 cakes out of it. I froze one cake after it was baked. When I was ready to use it, I defrosted it at room temperature and then baked it for 20 minutes to get the juices flowing again!
