Today I baked another cake for my Sunday morning group. I baked a cake that I love to make and everyone who has it loves it too… It’s easy and delicious. It’s a quick one I started making awhile back based from a Betty Crocker mix and modified.
As I’ve said before I love the ritual of baking. It’s an art that gives me so much reward. So here goes…
Fearsome’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake
1 box of Betty Crocker Butter Yellow Cake Mix
Make batter by Using 1 whole stick of melted butter (instead of the oil) and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and then mix as directed.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a 13×9 inch glass pan pour another stick of melted butter (not the one you’ve already used for the cake) slosh the melted butter around to coat pan the let rest sit on bottom. Pour one 16 ounce bag of brown sugar into baking pan and pat out evenly into butter. Place rings of canned pineapple from one end of pan to other evenly and tightly. Pour just a little pineapple juice into center of each pineapple ring. Then pour the cake batter on top and even it out.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until toothpick placed in center comes out clean. Cool for one – two hours and flip out onto a cookie sheet.
It’s simple and easy. All that butter and brown sugar…who couldn’t resist?
