    Lovely! Such a classic, I can’t remember when I had it last, but I have a feeling it won’t be long before I’ll be having it next!!!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Ginger! It’s one of those desserts you tend to forget. Usually it’s way too sweet, but I cut down on the sugar and it also helps that I used fresh pineapple. It’s a keeper! 🙂

  3. This might be the most beautiful pineapple upside down cake I’ve ever seen. Love!!

  4. Nadia says:

    Love the fluffed up pineapple slices!

  5. Wow Angie this is one beautiful cake. It looks so moist and delicious!

  6. This is beautiful! I love that you’ve layered the pineapple! I’m always wanting more pineapple in my pineapple upside down cake so this is brilliant!

    • Angie says:

      I always felt the same way, too! At first I thought of adding pineapple chunks in the batter, but decided to make the cakes pretty instead, lol! So glad you like it!

  7. Lily says:

    Wow! that’s my kind of upside down pineapple cake. Talk about taking something we’ve all seen a thousand times and making it chic – love it. Pinned!

  8. This looks so delicious, love this classic cake Angie! Have a superb weekend! 🙂

  9. Beautiful Angie and one of my all time favorite cakes. YUM!!

    You are a lady after my own heart… Sometimes, old fashioned is good!! Love the upside down pineapple cake! Love the way you have arranged the pineapple slices. As for slow, that is exactly how my day and more so my holidays go.. I have a long list of things to do and I am lucky if I get through a few of them… then again, I try to pack too many things in my day!

    • Angie says:

      I always plan my days in my head and in there I get to do and accomplish so many things. In reality, it never happens! Lol! We’re all in the same boat! 😀

    Angie this is just beautiful! Making a pineapple upside down cake is actually on my bucket list! I am not sure I can make it look as good as yours but I will give it a go. Inspirational 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Thanks! You can make mini version, Petra. One pineapple ring per mini cake. I’d do that if I’m pressed for time. Would look cute. The pineapple rosette looks prettier but it does take time 🙂

  12. I’m drooling over here! YUM!!!!

    Hey Angie!! Such a gorgeous cake you have brought, and I love the addition of cardamom! Too funny about the rabbit! You really have them in your yard? 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Oh yes! We started with a family of them living under our deck. At first the babies were cute and the kids forbade me to chase after them. They even fed them carrots! But now they’re big and pretty much destroyed my veggie patch 🙁 But the parents seemed to have abandoned them??

    • Angie says:

      Oh and they looove phlox! They left me with just a stubble, drat!

    I love Fiesta Friday! My hubby has been asking for pineapple upside down cake. This seals the deal, his dreams are about to come true! Lol

  15. I’m glad to be joining you for the second Friday in a row Angie – and of course I love this cake and the photos are lovely – reminding me of Summer…..

    • Angie says:

      Yay, Laura! So glad to hear! I hope you’re having fun. And yes, I agree, Summer needs to be full of fresh ingredients and lively colors. And the sun! 🙂

    Hey Angie, I’ve somehow not had a chance to get around to trying (eating / making ) pineapple upside down cake. My granddaughters are visiting from interstate. The younger is a keen baker and we are always on the look out for something interesting to make / bake each visit. This looks ideal. How many grams is 3/4 of a stick of butter?

    Now to take you to task, Angie. Picture me with a severe, grandmotherly expression telling you that pineapple upside down cake is not old fashioned. It’s a classic (like me). We need to be brought out of retirement now and again and appreciated. 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Lol, point taken, Mary! It reminds me of an incident when I called a 60-yr old “old old” and my coworker turned to me and said,”Thanks a lot, I just turned 60.” Oops! That was when I was much younger. Now 60 doesn’t sound old at all to me ? 3/4 cup of butter is 170 grams, but I actually didn’t even use all of it. I should amend the recipe. But hey, baking sessions with the granddaughters are a special occasion so go all out and use full amount. Might as well use 1 cup of sugar, too. That’s how much the original recipe calls for. Enjoy! XOXO

    • Angie says:

      Mary, please take note. I was giving you the conversion for 3/4 cup of butter, that’s why I was thinking it was too much.

      3/4 stick of butter is 85 grams. And that’s how much butter I used.

      Sorry, Mary, senior moment on my part!! ?

  17. I must be old because this old fashioned dessert does bring back a lot of memories for me! 🙂 This is- of course- the loveliest version I’ve ever seen. Nice!! 🙂

    I can’t wait until it’s pineapple season again here in Tonga. This recipe would amazing with the fresh pineapple they grow here!

    • Angie says:

      Yes it would! Oh how lucky to be able to get all those amazing tropical fruits there. I once tried Sugarloaf pineapple from Hawaii. White fleshed but oh so sweet!

  19. When I was young I despised pineapple and pineapple upside down cake. There, I said it. See, I’d only had canned. It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s that I tried fresh pineapple. Oh, I had a few opportunities earlier but I was so sure I hated it, that I never tried fresh if I saw it on a buffet or in a drink – so I finally learned that fresh pineapple is soooo much better than canned!

    And just think, now you can get fresh pineapple almost anywhere! The cake is lovely the photos are gorgeous and the rabbit…well where there’s one, there’s two. Where there’s two…i guess I don’t have to tell you about that!!

    • Angie says:

      I know! I used to hate this fruit cocktail dessert sometimes served at parties when I was young. You know, with the fruit cocktail from a can? Yuck!! And people who don’t like pineapple upside down cake probably tried it with canned pineapple. Fresh pineapple, people! There’s no excuse, like you said, it’s available now everywhere ??

  20. Ohh This is a pure delight!!! Such a great recipe for the summer!

  21. Beautiful Angie! And with fresh pineapple. I’ve only had upside down cake with canned pineapple. As in the previous post, fresh pineapple on my first visit to Hawaii was a revelation.

    • Angie says:

      Oh you’ll have to try it with fresh pineapples, Liz. So much better, I think. I want to retire in Hawaii ?? I told my husband that on a daily basis, lol.

  22. This looks so good Angie ? Could I using the same recipe and bake the cake without eggs ?

    • Angie says:

      I’m sure you can use your usual egg substitute for this. It may not taste exactly the same but if you’re used to eggless cakes, then it should be fine. I just haven’t baked a lot of cakes without eggs. Give it a try anyway, and let me know how it turns out for you.

    Absolutely delicious, Angie! As always 😀 Happy Fiesta xx

  24. Jhuls says:

    Why I can’t laugh at my jokes, too? I mostly find my jokes in my blog posts so boring, but when I let somebody read it, they laugh? And I guess you feel the same way, too? But belive me, Angie, I laugh at your jokes. You always make me smile. And this pineapple upside down cake is fantastic! I was also planning to make upside down cake, but a mango one. You know, mango is my favorite fruit. But let’s see when this lazy girl would be able to bake one. 😀 Now, would you please hand me over a slice? 😀

  25. Indu says:

    Looks so good, Angie! A pineapple upside down cake has been on my list for too long. Need to bake it one of these days! Your recipe looks perfect.

  26. Glenda says:

    Does anyone remember The Simpsons? In particular, when Homer saw a doughnut or something equally tasty the sound he made with his tongue hanging out of the side of his mouth? Yea. That’s me. Looks fantastic!

    • Angie says:

      Haha, of course I remember, who wouldn’t? Or how about when he asked the operator the number for 911? Lol, classic! So glad you like the cake, Glenda, ?

  27. Abby says:

    This looks so delicious!

  28. Sandhya says:

    Angie, I can so relate to the whats apping! I have two friend groups in India too,so even before I go to bed at night, they are on a roll with ‘good morning’ messages….remember me feeling like I don’t have enough time in the day:)
    Pineapple upside down cake is one of my favorites and you certainly have given it such a young fashionable look. Love the layered pineapple look in these and the flavors of rum and cardamom mingling! Yummy!

  29. Now I’m stopping by in official Throwback Thursday capacity, lol! Yep, it still looks just as scrumptious as it did last week, Angie!

    Thanks for sharing with us on Throwback Thursday!

    I turn off my WhatsApp dings so I can respond when I have time! Otherwise…ding ding ding ding ding all day and night! 😀 Angie, your cake is so pretty. Everything you make is so pretty. This is not fair. 😛

    • Angie says:

      It’s kinda distracting, right? I feel like I have to look every time it dings! So I think I need to turn it off, too, Patty. At least sometimes. And everything you photograph looks so beautiful, so there we’re even, haha… 😀

  31. Antonia says:

    What a beautiful cake Angie! This brings back a lot of memories. Great update on a classic!

  32. YumGoggle says:
