Legend has it that once my Mom burnt herself trying to flip this cake and it fell on the oven door…….and my Dad ate it anyway.  The first time I made Pineapple Upside Down cake I called Chris in from the shop to eat some warm because I was so proud of it, he and I sat at the kitchen table and ate the whole cake between the two of us – I swear, we might of even fought over who would lick the platter……..

The cast iron skillet and I have a love hate relationship.  Once seasoned properly and well maintained it is beyond anything you can imagine to cook with but I feel like a cast iron skillet is a very personal thing.

Two pretty hard and fast rules for me:

  • Don’t wear my underwear
  • Don’t use my cast iron skillet.

As a matter of fact about the only rule in my kitchen is don’t touch my cast iron skillet, I think it might actually be written in the Bible:

Nah, ye touch another man's cast iron skillet.

OK, probably not but it should be!

    This cake was awesome! I felt like there was a LOT of sugar in the pan with the butter, so I cut down the sugar. I should have cut down the butter a bit too.
    Definitely will make again with those adjustments.

  2. Amazing cake!!!! Tastes just like my mom’s from years ago, the cast iron pan is the secret to this recipe!!!

    This recipe seemed heavy on the brown sugar, even for my sweet tooth. Next time I will reduce it to 1 cup.
