Cakes Upside Down

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake - an old standard recipe that deserves to be revisited, especially when made with fresh golden pineapple and served warm with vanilla bean ice-cream.

The Pineapple Upside Down Cake was invented in the 1920s. Exactly when and by whom, it is not clear. Some say the recipe, then entitled, Pineapple Glace, was printed in a fundraising cookbook in Seattle in 1924. Others report that when the Hawaiian Pineapple Co, the predecessor of Dole Food Co, held a recipe contest in 1925, 2,500 of the 60,000 entries were for Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
