AtoZ-UPineapple upside down cake – Really????  What the heck do I say about this one.    When we were going through ideas for letter “U” this was the only thing that came to mind, but it’s not exactly something we make very often (if ever??).  To be honest, I can’t recall if we’ve ever made pineapple upside down cake in our family.  I mean we’ve had it before (at least me and The Hubby), but make it – Don’t think so…. And if we did it was once many many years ago.  I do recall something about my son’s scout troop (can’t remember if it was the one he’s in now or an older troop from before we moved) talking about making camp style pineapple-upside down cake….  Actually that sounds kind of good.

Come to think of it, there’s a variety of “Upside Down” cakes you could make…  Apple, Peach, Berry (Blackberry, Strawberry) – To name a few…  Pineapple is just one of the more well known ones and gives you a base idea.   And an Upsidedown cake can be relatively easy to make…  You basically need a cake recipe (either homemade or boxed)  and appropriate fruit.  You put in your fruit in the bottom of the cake pan (probably want to grease it first??) then pour your cake batter over the fruit.  Cook according to instructions.  When the cake has cooled (after cooking) and you flip it out unto a plate or serving platter – Walllaaa, the fruit is now on top of the cake 🙂
