“Pineapple upside down cake, cares and woes you’ve got ’em. Pineapple upside down cake, your top is on your bottom”. My mom makes this simple dessert so often, and she says that little chant each time. Whenever she makes it, it is the first dessert to go. It got to the point where she had to make two to have enough for everyone! I loved carrying on the tradition this week with her recipe. It’s nothing fancy since it uses boxed cake mix and simple ingredients.
I let them cool for at least half an hour before I turned them out onto plates. The top became the bottom to reveal the pretty brown sugar and pineapple layer! I found myself saying my mom’s little chant as I turned them out for good juju that they turned out ok. The butter did its job though and the cakes slid right out. When I tried a piece I was so happy. It tasted just like my mom’s and looked so pretty. Best of all, it really was no fuss at all! I hope you all love it. xoxo
