Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Makes a 9” round cake.

Updated: Mar 6

(We made it on The Old Gays episode.)


1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, melted

1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar, firmly packed

7 Slices Canned Pineapple (reserve 1/2 cup juice for cake)

13 Candied Cherries

2 Cups All-purpose Flour

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

2 Large Eggs

1/2 Cup Heavy Cream

1/2 Cup Reserved Pineapple Juice


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Grease the sides of a 9 by 9 by 3-inch round baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter.

For the topping: In a small bowl, beat the melted butter and brown sugar together. 

Spread the mixture over the bottom of the prepared baking pan. 

Arrange six pineapple slices around the edge of the pan and one in the middle. 

Place a cherry in the center of each pineapple ring and distribute the rest of the cherries between the slices at the edges.

For the Cake: In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cloves. 

In another large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. 

Beat in the eggs one at a time. Using a spatula, alternately fold in the flour mixture and the heavy cream and pineapple juice until blended.

Spread the batter over the pineapple slices and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool the cake in the pan for 5 minutes. Then, run a metal spatula around the edge to loosen the cake. Invert a serving plate over the cake pan and turn the cake and plate over together. Remove the cake pan.

Serve the cake warm with whipped cream. 

The Palm Springs Baker appeared on the wildly popular syndicated "Jason Show" this morning! Was such fun to chat with Jason about recent Palm Springs Baker Show guests Lucie Arnaz and her wonderful daughter Kate Luckinbill. As well, we talked about viral sensations "The Old Gays" being on my show and then baked up a recipe that's sort of OLD and GAY . . . delicious Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. Get the full recipe at
