I made the cake just as outlined, except, instead of water, I used the left over juice/rum from the fruit…..one thing I would change next time is that, I didn’t know how high up on the skillet the cake would come so I cut the pineapple rings in half for the sides ,,,,,,,,, I now know that I could have used full rings for the sides…..
I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes & put foil over it so it wouldn’t burn……….after 50 minutes of baking time, I checked it & it needed more time……..total actual baking time til it was done was approx…….70-75 minutes…
After I took it out & decided it was (hopefully) done, I let it set for about 15 minutes, then I took a “skewer” and poked holes all over the cake – then I poured
about 2 shots of Captain Morgan over the cake – it was rapidly absorbed….
After about another 15 minutes, I managed to invert the cake onto a tray
Everyone said it was a winner !!!!!!!
I dont have a cast iron skillet is ther a way i can just put the fruit in the botom of the cake pan instead
I followed the recipe, but instead of water, I used the juice from the can of pineapples. I used a rectangular baking pan. The oven here is a gas oven. I had to take it out of the oven ten minutes early, used a knife to test it and it came out clean. The sides of the cake were way too dark and overdone. The cake itself was ok, but didnt really hold up as well. I am finding that this oven here runs too hot I think, and I am still getting used to it. I just need some help! What could I do differently? I recently made bread, and the same thing happened....any suggestions? If I take it out any earlier, it wont be done in the middle. Please tell me what I should do differently. Thanks
what is the best way to get it out of the pan ???
Also over lap the 9 slices in the can on your cake, and put the last slice in the middle of the top. Tuck your STEMMED cherries under the sliced so they stand up when you turn the cake over. Gives it a gourmet look!
I also put some ground nuts between the slices after the cake is done.I like pecans or black walnuts best.
I made cupcakes instead of a cake and it turned out perfect!!! I wanted to try and see what would happen. I did use the juice from the pineapple instead of water. There looked like litte mini pineapple upside down cakes. No need to cut, everyone just took a "mini" cake.
Ilike it best the second day after refrigerating.
Take it out of the oven and stir the brown sugar into the melted butter, then arrange the pineapple slices etc. on top of brown sugar. Pour batter over it and put back in the oven to bake.
At my granddaughter's birthday, last month, l decided to try this recipe and serve it alongside the birthday cake ( baked by me .) lt came out so well and tasted so good, l had 2 orders that day.
From now on, l will always add it to my list of things to bake for any celebration.
THANKS DUNCAN HINES.
YUMYUM it was beautiful too.
Tried cooking carmel alone for 15mins, didnt work... Maybe it was just to much butter.
my family must be piggies because only about 10 servings (no diet conscience party).
did not stick to cast iron pan at all.
