Pineapple Upside-Down Cake (Version 2)

No recipe is ever perfect. If any recipe is ever described as “perfect”, it’s very likely hyperbole rather than fact. So I’m always tweaking my recipes and recipes I come across.

Pineapple Cake V2

Like the pineapple upside-down cake I made last year. It was great and delicious, but too much on the thin side for my liking. I prefer my cakes to stand tall. I also wanted to get more pineapple into each slice.

The simple solution was to downsize the cake tin called for in the recipe. By using a 7-inch tin instead of a 9-inch one, I was able to double the height of the cake. I also stacked two layers of pineapple rings instead of one.

Taller cake and more pineapple — I’d say it’s an improvement.
