This Pineapple Upside Down Cake is baked in a cast iron skillet. I grew up with this. This cake is my favorite and my mother cooked it year after year for me on my birthday. The brown sugar and butter flavors with the pineapple is just excellent. This Pineapple upside down cake is simple and quick to prepare. Top it with whip cream and what a treat!
