{ 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!
