Cake, Please!

August 9, 2010

When the question is “cake or …,” I choose cake.

This week I made a pineapple upside-down cake, with a few modifications from necessity. I used Alton Brown’s recipe, which calls for cornmeal - a bit unusual but I think it added an interesting consistency. I don’t have a cast-iron skillet, or even a cake pan, so I simply used a square 8x8 glass dish. It worked just fine. The cake came out chewy and sweet and pineapple-y, just what I wanted! And overall, it was very easy to make. I’d give it 5 stars. And even Justin admitted that it was very good, despite having seen how much butter and sugar went into it!
