Do NOT Lick Your Screen

What have we here?

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

It’s cake…a Pineapple Upside Down Cake baked in a genu-wine cast iron pan, y’all!

Starts looking ordinary, like this (ho-hum):

But, if you do it right, turns out all gooey and caramel-y and pineapple-y, like this:

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

My B-I-L, one of the outlaws (as I count myself), did the nicest thing for me.  So, of course I wanted to thank him in a very Patti-esque way.  It was either bake his fav-or-rite cake or write him a poem.  I think I made the right choice.

This is a new recipe, one I took from the Smitten Kitchen’s stash.  If the cake tastes anything like the creamy light batter (WITH RUM!) I licked from the spoon, if the cake tastes anything like the deliriously sinful caramel-based bottom the pineapples rest in, if the cake tastes anything like the heavenly smell emanating from the kitchen RIGHT NOW, then this cake will be a new tradition.

I hope it’s the best Pineapple Upside Down Cake B-I-L has ever had.  Because one good deed deserves another.

If you’ve never used a cast iron skillet, I can testify to their all around usefulness.  Mine will be handed down one day…it’s that good.

Happy Baking, my babies!

P.S. Do you guys think it’s hokey to bake as a thank you?  Do you think I should have gone with the poem?
