We took a family vacation to Kauai earlier this month. Seven glorious days in the land of never-ending crashing waves and turn down service.
And dessert, like every night.
One night we wandered around a bit trying to decide what to eat for dinner. We had already planned to grab ice cream at Lappert’s for dessert so I was bummed when I saw pineapple upside-down cake on the dessert menu at Roy’s.
Back at the hotel, I pinned two recipes for the cake that had been on my mind all night. They’ve both been re-pinned over one hundred times already. Who knew so many people liked pineapple upside-down cake because my husband cringed at the prospect of me baking this cake.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Of the two recipes, I chose this one from EugenieKitchen.com. She has stunning photographs and I love her how-to videos. Her suggested prep time of 20 minutes took me way longer and I had to shave nearly 15 minutes off the 50-60 minute bake time. The cake was definitely tasty. Not too sweet, maybe a little bit under done – but that was this baker’s way to either 1. under bake all things or 2. burn them to a crisp.
My pineapple upside-down cake obsession has definitely been met. Now, life would be complete if I could get someone to leave a chocolate on my pillow.
