Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Pineapple upside down cake
If you have about 1½ cups of ripe fresh pineapple to spare, and are in the mood for baking, then you and your family are sure to enjoy this twist on traditional upside-down cake. I prefer to make it in a skillet the old-fashioned way since it’s easier to melt the butter, cooks a little faster and it comes out of a non-stick frying pan very easily.
