Caramelized Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Caramelized Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Dramatic in presentation while remaining deceptively simple to make? That’s my kind of cake! Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is a beloved Southern classic, widely recognized by its colloquial name: The Bomb Dot Com.  Baked in a base of brown sugar and pineapple slices, which become increasingly sticky and sweet during their spa-moment in the oven, this show-stopper can be ready to invert onto a serving plate and slice within the hour. It’s sure to impress while helping you stress a little less… what could be better?
