Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes from Cook IT Allergy Free

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.

Kim of Cook IT Allergy Free tells a sweet story—a confession, in fact—about her grandmother’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake and how much she loved it as a child. “I also remember picking off all of the pineappley, buttery, brown sugary caramelized topping when no one was looking and then trying to smooth it over to make it look like my fingers had not yet found all of that deliciousness.” Has anybody else ever done that? Ha! I thought so! Kim uses fresh pineapple and serves her version in ramekins … Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes. What a treat to have your own individual Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake!
