Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes
The variations on this cake are endless. Try it with any of your favorite fruits, like cherries or peaches. You could even use slices of pears or apples (a mandolin makes really pretty, thin slices that are perfect for that). Whatever your choice of fruit, the concept is the same–pour a buttery caramel sauce at the bottom of the pan, spread the fruit on the bottom, add the batter and bake. When it’s all done, flip it upside down and watch all the sugary goodness ooze down over the cake. We recommend making this dish the night before it’s to be enjoyed. The longer it sits, the tastier it becomes as it chills in the caramel. Love is served.
