For whatever reason, I've got a hankering for pineapple upside down cake.....

Can you point me to your favorite recipe or pass on some tips?

  1. The pineapple upside down cake in Flour (Joanne Chang cookbook) is outstanding.

    1. I make the recipe in Rick Bayless' Everyday Mexican. Easy to make and very yummy.

        I was going to recommend this one, though I've never actually made it with pineapple (I used rhubarb). Still, it's a good and easy cake.

      2. The ATK/CI one is my personal favorite.

          I like this one as well - cooking down the fresh pineapple really makes the topping extra special.

            You know what, I've never done that step. I just put the fresh or canned pineapple, whichever I have on hand on top of the brown sugar like usual. I just like the texture of their cake recipe.

        2. Are you using fresh or canned pineapple? My recipe uses some of the canned juice for the liquid.


            this one from joy of baking is very good. i have also made it subbing coconut milk for the regular milk.
