Notes on Ingredients

How to Make Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Prepare the Pan: In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter and brown sugar. Spread this mixture evenly in a well-buttered 9-inch round cake pan. Arrange the dried pineapple chunks on top of the sugar mixture.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
  4. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter with the white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Beat well after each addition.
  6. Bake: Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Place the cake in the middle of the oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Invert: Let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes. Run a thin knife around the edge and invert the cake onto a plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
