Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Great recipe. I used a French Vanilla cakemix and mixed by hand, liquid and semi-liquid ingredients first, then added to cake mix. Whisking and some labor seem to make things taste better. Used a cast iron skillet and also used pineapple chunks instead of rings, because that's what we had. However, I've never liked cutting the rings when I eat PUDC, so this work better on multiple levels. This is a high impact, low effort dessert, so I strongly recommend you make it a showcase part of the evening. Make it after the meal while everyone is chatting and sipping, then put a cake plate on the table, shake the cake in the skillet to loosen it a bit, then flop it out in front of everyone. If you get the results I did, there will be ooohing and ahhhing and then the smell of warm cake will waft up. Everyone hands down thought this was quite an event, and gobbled the cake while saying it was one of the best things they had ever eaten. I had chunks and cherries all across the golden sugary bottom of the cake, and hope I can post a picture somehow, as it looked very beautiful. You will have your cake and eat it too...until it's gone!
