I'm head over heels with this pineapple upside down cake recipe! Not only is it easy to make, it also brings the flavour of the tropics right into your home. I found this recipe and it has the unusual twist of adding lime for that an extra Carribean punch of flavour into the cake. And I love the addition of pecan nuts. It is caramelized and flavored with pineapple, it's my favorite part of the cake!
Originally, pineapple upside down cakes were cooked in a frying pan. The butter and brown sugar were melted together, pineapple rings artfully arranged all around, occasionally maraschino cherries dotted the rings to make it more fancy, then a white cake is poured over and baked. Once baked, the pan is flipped over and voila, a showcase of caramelized pineapple and gooey sauce on top or the cake.
Since I didn't own a frying pan that would not melt in the oven, I used a regular 9" round cake pan. I made the butter and brown sugar separately and poured into the pan. I used fresh cherries that I had in hand. I also like to brush a bit of rum on the top just to umph that tropical flavour. This cake is best eaten warm with whipped cream.
