Retro Recipe- Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Time for another retro recipe!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I have never had pineapple upside down cake... and I'm not sure I would like it. Lovely readers, have you had it before?

You will need:
  • 1 can(s) (20 1/2 ounce) pineapple rings in pineapple juice

  • 12 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup(s) light brown sugar, lightly packed

  • 1/2 cup(s) dark brown sugar, lightly packed

  • 1/3 cup(s) chopped pecans

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 large egg yolks

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar

  • Directions

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Drain the pineapples and discard the juice. Place the pineapples on six layers of paper towel and allow the excess liquid to absorb for 5 minutes. Flip the rings over onto a dry spot of the towel and repeat.

  • Melt 6 tablespoons of butter, pour it into a 10-inch round cake pan, and sprinkle with the brown sugars. Arrange the pineapple rings in a single layer over the brown sugars, sprinkle with the nuts, and set aside.

  • Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside. Lightly beat the eggs, yolks, and vanilla together in a small bowl and set aside. Beat the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.

  • Reduce speed to low and alternately mix in the flour mixture and egg mixture. Pour the batter into the pan and bake until golden brown and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean — about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes on wire rack. Run a small, sharp knife around the edge of the pan to release cake.

    1. Oh my goodness. It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling - because, well, there's NOTHING better than ANYTHING with pineapple! :D I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!
