Pineapple Upside Down Cake – triple dose of old-fashioned, buttery, brown sugared, melt-in your-mouth pineapple upside-down cake layered with sweet, pillowy homemade cinnamon-vanilla whipped cream. Bonus: no mixer required for the cake recipe (just for the whipped cream). Triple the glaze and triple the fruit and you’ve got a whole new world of awesome!!! This is the kind of show-stopping cake you want to bake for guests, friends and family.
This super moist and full of flavor cake has three layers of caramelized pineapple and maraschino cherries with buttery brown sugar juicy glaze, and that’s the best part of every pineapple upside-down cake, right?!
When I saw this cake at A Latte Food I became totally obsessed with it. It took the finest part of the entire Pineapple Upside Down Cake and tripled it in every single bite, plus there’s light and fluffy whipped cream full of delicious cinnamon flavor. It seems like a dream come true, so I had to try it.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the old –fashioned pineapple upside down cake, with thick cake part full of brown sugar and vanilla flavor and the buttery, browned sugar juicy topping dripping on all sides of the cake, but this way I could get a lot more of my favorite part.
Three layers of pure deliciousness sound so much better than one layer!!!
If you ever baked Pineapple Upside Down Cake than you know as the cake bakes, the buttery brown sugar sauce bubble up the sides, creating a buttery glaze on all sides of the cake. And it’s absolutely the best part! So you can imagine how juicy, moist and buttery this cake will be when the cake batter part and the glaze part are in a different ratio, in favor of the glaze of course.
For a cake base I use my own vanilla cake recipe with melted butter. I love this recipe because there’s no mixer required. There’s no need to mixing the butter and sugar, adding the ingredients one by one…Just whisk by hand melted butter and sugars, add wet ingredients whisk a little, add dry ingredients whisk to combine, pour the batter in the pan and you’re done. Since I don’t have three round cake pans and I had to wait for every layer to bake to use the pan again, I made the batter in three parts. It might sounds as a lot of work but every part of the batter is done in a few minutes and you don’t even need to clean the bowl in between .
It’s a little time consuming waiting for 30 minutes to use the pan again, but if you have three 9 inch round cake pans you will finished these cake really quick and easy.
This luscious springtime Pineapple Upside Down Cake will become your favorite instead of standard Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe.
