Cakes Upside Down
Apricot-Cornmeal Upside Down Cake
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.
