Pineapple Upside Down Cake

So after the disaster that was my Apple Bundt Cake, I decided to do something a bit more familiar. Everyone loves pineapple upside down cake. Well, except for the baby, who loves neither pineapple nor cherries, but was happy to peel them off and eat the cake by itself. I used a flan pan, which worked well. I had extra batter so used a loaf pan as well as means of comparison. The flan came out lovely, the loaf came out very dry with burnt edges. Both were devoured by the horde. Naturally. I used glase cherries here, which were disgusting. I’ll stick with maraschino cherries in the future. Crappy cherries aside, the cake was to die for. Moist and sweet and just amazing.  My son slept round a friends house the night I made it, and by the next night it was all gone. He moaned to me, “I didn’t get any cake”. Oops.  I blame the husband, who despite a usually deficient sweet tooth, was standing in the kitchen eating a piece of cake every time I walked in…

I’m going to do another apple cake soon, this time using my spring form pan and an adding an apple cream cheese frosting, though making that into a filling might be nice, if not to rich, as well.
