    Default Pineapple Upside Down Cake

    My mother used to make this.

    Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe

    Preparation and cooking time: About an hour and a half.

    The cake is wonderfully dense, with a slight almond flavor and with sweetness from caramel and pineapple.

    Topping:
    1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    1 can (20 oz) of pineapple slices

    Cake:
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    6 Tbsp cake flour
    6 Tbsp of ground almonds (from about 2 oz of whole almonds)
    3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 3/4 cups of sugar
    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
    4 large eggs
    3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3/4 cup sour cream

    Start by making the caramel topping. Take brown sugar and butter and combine and melt in a saucepan on medium heat until sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbly, this should take several minutes. Pour mixture into a 10 inch diameter stick-free cake pan with 2 inch high sides. Arrange pineapple slices in a single layer ontop of the caramel mixture.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Whisk the flours, almonds, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the sugar and butter together until light. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in the vanilla. Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream in 2 additions each, beating well after each addition. Pour cake batter over caramel and pineapple in pan.

    Bake cake until tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool cake in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Turn cake out onto a platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    I'm going to try this. My mother used to make it as well and I don't have the recipe! Thanks.

    Mmmmm, one of my favorites. I tend to just use a mix because I'm lazy, but I'll try this for Christmas!
