How to make it

  • Cream 6T butter, honey and raw sugar in electric mixer until well combined and a lil fluffy
  • Add egg and vanilla and beat well, again.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and add it, alternating with the buttermilk, mixing until just combined.
  • Melt remaining 6T butter in a 12inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Swirl it around so it comes up the sides a bit, then sprinkle brown sugar over the butter on the bottom of the pan.
  • Add pineapple slices to top of the brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle with pecans, especially in the holes of the pineapple and in between the slices.
  • Pour the cake batter over the pineapple and bake in a 350 oven for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the cake(a gooey bit from the sugar doesn't count ;)
  • Let cool in pan 5-10 minutes then fit the bottom of a serving platter over the top of the skillet and flip, turning the cake, pineapple slices up, onto the platter.
  • Serve warm or after cooled.

    I realize that Keni probably posted this recipe during her illness, and I'm assuming since it has not been rated that it might not have been made yet, but I wanted to mention 2 discrepancies:

    The juice of half a lemon in the ingredients list was not mentioned in the method.

    The nutmeg listed in the method had no amount given in the ingredients list.

    If any of you have made it, let me know the quantity you used and when, or if you excluded those two items.

    sounds wonderful - want to make with a few peaches I have on hand! Only one question: is half the butter inside the cake then half for the topping? I don't see the amount to divide. thanks!

    Oh, how wonderful. I remember my mom making pineapple upside down cake in a cast iron pan when I was a kid. She'd flip that pan and that pretty cake would come out. I thought it was magic. :) That gooey brown sugar - and she used cherries. Thanks for the lovely memory.
