Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe brings back nostalgic memories of fancy desserts. In the 1950's when kitchen appliances made baking easier, the presentation of food became more of a focus. Placing fruit on a cake in perfect symmetry made dessert look as great as it tasted. With a revival of nostalgic baking, Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a wonderful recipe to create new memories with.
