Pineapple Upside Down Cake is one of those desserts that often gets cited as “my favorite cake” and is made for many special occasions. I’ve made it myself a few times and family members have always been thrilled. Pineapple Upside Down Cake is often a prize winner in competitions, too. That’s understandable because when done right, it’s a beautiful and wonderfully moist, delightfully “sticky” and rich cake.
