{ pineapple upside down cake }





My late grandfather's birthday is coming up, and I've been thinking a lot about him the past few days. So, in honor of him, I wanted to make a pineapple upside down cake, which was his absolute favorite, with Aidan and Olivia. I had a fresh pineapple on hand, so I found a recipe for one on Martha's website and we went to town.


{ can I just tell you that I love my vintage Kitchen Aid? }




{ it belonged to my grandmother, and it has to be from the 60s, if not earlier, back when they were still made in Ohio }




{ is there anything better than fresh pineapple? I think not }




{ especially when there is extra for Aidan and Olivia to eat }




{ butter and brown sugar topping }




{ pineapple rings }




{ after working with a Kitchen Aid, you'll never go back to cake mixes in a box. I promise }




{ it just doesn't compare to the real thing }




{ the recipe called for sour cream, but I substituted that with plain yogurt }




{ more pineapple }




{ almost ready to bake! }




{ fresh out of the oven }




{ ta da! inversion complete and a success. isn't this a beautiful cake? }




{ seriously, this is the best pineapple upside down cake I've ever had }




Let me know if you try the recipe too!

Love the vintage Kitchen Aid!
Did you know that I have never had pineapple upside down cake? I might just have to try this recipe!

Katie, it really is yummy. And the yogurt makes it really moist.

Mel, you should definitely try it! Let me know what you think about it if you do. Most recipes call for canned pineapple, but I really liked this one with the fresh fruit.

I love my Kitchen Aid, too! That thing is a work horse.
