Mamas Pineapple Upsidedown Cake Recipe @pinch

We can see why Melissa has carried on the tradition of making her mom's pineapple upside havedown cake. It is easy to prepare and full of wonderful tropical pineapple flavor. The cake itself is fluffy and moist and looks just beautiful flipped over on a serving platter. Pineapple slices and cherries make for an impressive presentation. With 6 kids and a busy household to run, this was one of my Mama's signature desserts and one of our family's favorites. She made it so many times, I think it belonged to her and Duncan Hines! There are other versions that use a white or yellow cake mix, but it wouldn't be the same for me without the pineapple cake inside.Now that Mama does her baking in Heaven, my sisters and nieces and I continue to carry on her tradition! It is so good!The cake in my picture is a 1/2 sheet cake and is double the size of this recipe.
