Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake
It was very good !
I used the whole pineapple as directed, there was a lot, so I decided to put in a 9x13 Pyrex. I think if I had used a cake pan, the pineapples would stack too many layers, wouldn't look pretty like the photo shown. Even in 9x13 pan, I stacked pineapples 2 layers. When I made the batter it was not enough to spread completely to cover the whole thing ( I even used all 3 eggs, what's the point of leaving one yolk out ?) so I spread it very thin, not covering every inch.
I would have to say, after it baked, the dough did raise a little so it looked fine...But, I did not dare to turn the pan upside down, we just cut out of the pan, and it was certainly delicious, definitely more pineapples then cake. We didn't mind that. The pineapples left juice at the bottom which was really good...note :It was not thicker and caramelized like I had imagined though. The 'cake' part was more like a firm crust, which was good.
Overall it was very good and refreshing, not dense and heavy.
