The recipe is good, but could stand a few tweaks.
As another baker mentioned, I cut the white sugar to 1/2 C and it's still plenty sweet.
The batter directions are a little convoluted, so I would suggest the following order:
Cream remaining 1/2 C butter with 1/2 C sugar.
Add one egg at a time and beat. Add vanilla and sour cream.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking power.
Add flour mixture to the batter.
How to manage the pineapple and brown sugar portions were perfectly clear.
Thanks for this recipe. It came out great, but I did run into a little stumbling in the directions which is why I added the order above.
Pretty delicious and quick to make!
Had a bunch of fresh chopped pineapple in the fridge (thanks to my mom 's trip to Costco) and needed to do something with it. The brown sugar & butter sauce gave the cake nice moisture after flipping, but next time I might caramelize it more after cooking the pineapple for crunchier edges and more "stickiness."
I made a few modifications: I didn't have sour cream so I used 1/2 cup whole milk and it still came out fluffy, firm, and moist. I also used 1/4 cup less granulated sugar in the cake, because the topping felt sweet enough already, which I preferred.
And a reminder to spread out your batter—I poured the batter in the middle of the pan and didn't do a great job evening it out, so the cake in the middle was a bit definitely taller! Everything still came out perfectly done in the 40 min bake time, though.Read More
I used this recipe to make a pineapple upside down cake for the first time ever. It was my cousin's birthday and his wife told me that this is his favourite. I saw a similar recipe that removed the sour cream as they wanted it firmer. I like moist cakes so I went with this one. It was divine... and a huge hit with my cousin. He could not believe that this was the first time I'd attempted to make this cake and said that a chef usually makes it for him but that this was just as good. That made my day! The cake is fluffy and moist and just delicious!! I'm not so sure what was so confusing about the recipe except that I suppose people have become used to having quite a bit of hand holding with videos for baking.Read More
It’s a pretty dry cake just like the picture. I don’t understand how it got such great reviews. Instructions are not clear. Pineapple and carmel was good.Read More
My daughter made this cake for a special persons birthday and she said it was the best pineapple upside cake ever. So I am following suit and making 2 for a work friends birthday! Super easy to make and she was correct, made with fresh pineapple and real butter makes for the best cake❤️Read More
STEP 3 written order does not make sense. Bowl A (sour cream, eggs, vanilla), Bowl B (dry ingredients), Confusion: "Add the remaining stick of butter and 1/4 cup of sour cream and beat at low speed until smooth, then beat at medium speed until fluffy. " ??? Add to... Bowl A, B, or stand alone Bowl C? It mentions add in Bowl A and beat till fluffy ....but does not mention the dry ingredients at the end.?? fold in?Read More
