Who Really Eats Pineapple Upside-Down Cake?

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.

I've been obsessed with baking a pineapple upside-down cake since our recent trip to Hawaii. The recipe from EugenieKitchen.com was perfect.

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

I've been obsessed with baking a pineapple upside-down cake since our recent trip to Hawaii. The recipe from EugenieKitchen.com was perfect.

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.

  1. Hi Wendy – So the MIL and I have this ongoing “thing” with pineapple upside down cake. I love pineapples. Love them. As in, one bite takes me to a tropical vacation without spending any money. But I recently discovered that I am now allergic to pineapples. My MIL loves pineapples too, but for whatever reason, she has a visceral reaction to pineapple upside down cake. Which of course is one of my favorites. But now I can’t eat. Thank you for letting me enjoy this delicious dessert vicariously and without going into anaphalatic shock! I don’t want my mini tropical vacation to end! Hugs, Holly

  2. And now I’m headed to the grocery for pineapple. Thank you for the inspiration!

    I never liked it before, but we had some at Wild Fish and it was absolutely amazing! They serve it flambé!
