This pineapple upside down cake is made in an iron skillet. It's quick, easy and so beautiful.
This iconic American dessert looks like a simple, rustic fruit cobbler when it comes out of the oven, all browned and bubbling, but a few minutes later, when it's turned over and that gloriously caramelized surface is revealed, it becomes so much more.
The cake's structure is terrible. After baking and letting it cool for a long period of time, I tried to turn it out onto a plate and the whole thing fell apart -- it looks more like bread pudding with pineapple on it. The flavor is just OK -- with all the butter and sugar, it should have been amazing, but it wasn't. Like sweet but with no flavor.
I made this exactly as directed, and after 45 minutes in the oven, it was still raw in the middle of the cake. However the outside was beginning to burn. It tasted very good, but the bake time seems to be off. My oven has been recently calibrated, so I know my temperature is correct. Perhaps baking a bit longer at 350 yield better results.
