I have been asked to make MY FIRST EVER Pineapple Upsidedown Cake and I have a few questions:
1) Can I make this cake using a REGULAR CAKE PAN? I have read recipes but all of the ones I saw says to use a CAST IRON SKILLET????? Ummmmm HUH? HELP?
2) I have a bundt pan, w actually. One with a design and then the old fashion regular one. Can I use one of them?
3) Do u use regular non-stick baing spray in the pan before you lay the pineapples and brown sugar mixers on the bottom? OR Do you lay that in first and then just spray the sides of the cake pan beofre pouring the cake batter?
I'M SO LOST AND THIS IS DUE TOMORROW. CAN SOMEONE ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME MAKE THIS THING
i use a regular round pan and don't grease or flour the pan at all. the melter butter should keep it from sticking. put the pineapple (rings) down, you can arrange them to form a pattern. sometimes i put maraschino cherries in the centers. pour the batter in and bake as usual. HTH
Pineapple upside down cakes are my signature cake - I make several a week! You can use a bundt or regular cake pan. Melt your butter and pour into the bottom of the pan, it should be enough to cover the bottom. Sprinkle brown sugar on the butter. Place your pineapple rings (or crushed pineapple that has been drained can also be used) into the butter and sugar. Put a half of a maraschino cherry, face down into each ring (or into the crushed pineapple). Pour your batter and bake! Usually takes about 4o minutes. Dont turn it out until it is cool or else your pineapples will stick to the pan, Hope that helps!
I love to use the petal shaped pans for pineapple upsidedown cakes. Rings fit perfectly into the petals and makes a nice different presentation than most folks have seen.
