Wow, when’s the last time you had Pineapple Upside-Down Cake?
Cappuccino Dacquoise, Triple Chocolate Mousse, White Truffle Cheesecake Gateau… as spectacular as all these cakes sound — and look — they all have two things in common. For all we mortals in the crowd, they are bought cakes. You impress your guests by what you spent on dessert, rather than on what you made. And, they are so excessively luxurious that we quickly became jaded by them.
But Pineapple Upside-Down Cake… No one has seen one for so long, that it’s bound to wow them. And while your guests might be tempted at first sight to think you bought it, the very next thought that occurs to them will be that you couldn’t have — when’s the last time you saw one for sale anywhere? Anyone with a modicum of kitchen competence has a reasonable right to expect it to turn out as a stunning looking cake that’s all the more impressive, because it’s come out of your oven — even if you did cheat and save time by making the batter from a cake mix.
Consider making one soon. In the meantime, read about the history of Pineapple Upside-Down Cake right here on CooksInfo.com, and check out the entry on canned pineapple, too, which makes it all possible.
