Perfect Pineapple Upside Down Cake
One of my family’s favorite desserts is homemade Pineapple Upside Down Cake. This is a homemade cake, which I prepared in a ramekin, and this came out moist with a sticky-sweet fruit layer.
If you are looking for a simple homemade dessert, this is a showstopper, served with the traditional pineapple ring and a maraschino cherry on top. These started prepared in a cast-iron pan over an open flame, but today’s version is ready in the air fryer.
What Is A Pineapple Upside Down Cake?
The cake is prepared almost in reverse with the toping on the bottom of the cake pan or, in our case, the ramekin, and after you bake the cake, you flip it, and the bottom becomes the top layer.
The classic topping of a Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a pineapple ring and a maraschino cherry, topped with melted butter and brown sugar. It’s a perfect and sweet dessert.
The butter and brown sugar caramelize up to a great topping. Today, the cake is moist and delicious; we used ramekins to make individual pineapple upside-down cakes.
