Easy pineapple upside down cake recipe

For the most part, we tend to look down on canned fruits and vegetables as inferior to fresh ones, and in many cases we’re right. However, canned products have their moments. When making tomato sauce, for example, canned tomatoes are actually superior to those just off the vine. Canned pineapple may also be better for cooking than the fresh kind. It’s less acidic, so canned pineapple is a much better option for a Jell-O dessertfor example.

In reverse cake, recipe developer Ting Dalton finds canned pineapples “more aesthetically pleasing” due to the fact that “the perfectly cut rings of [canned] pineapple [are] which gives this cake its nostalgic retro feel of the 1970s.” She also says this cake “never fails,” but notes that it’s also “super easy to make.” Canned pineapple rings and all, Dalton’s upside-down cake is pretty traditional. However, it involves a homemade cake rather than the box mix called for in many recipes. That said, it’s still an easy recipe and in just an hour you’ll have a delicious, retro-looking, homemade pineapple inverted cake!
