I attended a cooking demonstration when I was in 4H and this is the recipe they taught. I was 12 and I'm now 72 so this is definitely a recipe that has been around awhile.

Absolutely! Most things are best when cooked in a cast iron skillet! This is one of my favorites! And my Dad's too, who passed away a few years ago. We still celebrate his birthday with a pineapple upside down cake!


Your lovely post inspired me, so I made the cake, and it turned out great. I love my iron skillet. It's over 60 years old, and was passed along to me through my husbands family.


We just made the cake and thank you so much for posting this it's so easy and Yummy....

Ohh, Pineapple Upside Down Cake..One of the most perfectly delicious old timey cakes! Everytime i make one for company they go crazy! Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)


Tina - I made the Pineapple Upside Down cake in the cast iron skillet and it was DELICIOUS.... thank you for sharing!


This is a favorite at our house and I always use the iron skillet. My son just requested I make this the other day. He could eat this every single day.


I've been thinking about this cake all week!!!! It looks delicious!

Linda Gentry

Oh my gosh, Tina Lee!! I always got SO excited when Mother baked a Pineapple Upside Down Cake ... I can almost smell it coming out of that wonderful oven now! She would be so proud of your baking skills! Enjoy a piece for me! Love you, Lulu

Susan Ramey Cleveland

I love pineapple upside down cake. The only way I've ever made it is in an iron skillet.

I know what's for desert tonight. I've never made it in an iron skillet...it looks scrumptous!


It is my favorite cake. My mom always made it for me.
She used Bisquick but said it doesnt taste the same.

I think this cake would be perfect as dessert for my BUNCO group I am hosting in March. Can you make it the day before and will it keep well to serve the next day?

Oh Tina....that's how my Nanny used to do it. It's just not right if it's not done in the black iron skillet! You nailed it sister...

Teacup Lane (Sandy)

This looks like a tasty, easy dessert to make for BUNCO when I host our group in March. Can you make it the day before and will it keep until my BUNCO starts the next evening?

I LOVE pineapple upside down cake. I will have to try this!



Oh, it's been so long since I made one, but I was taught to make mine in an iron skillet in Home Ec in Jr. High. I'm gonna' have to make one soon!

Thank you for this recipe. Mines in the oven right now. Smells fabulous!!! Can't wait to dig in!

Rita May

Can't live without my cast iron skillet! I'll try the cake. It looks so pretty. What size skillet? I have 4, I'm guessing it's a 10" (I have 12', 10", 8" and 6")

You always have the best recipes! When my Meemaw passed away, I got her cast iron skillet! And I treasure it! This will be something I have got to try in it! Thanks for the recipe! Patti


I have an iron skillet and I have never used it. I will this weekend. I can't wait to try out this receipe. Tina, I stalk your page almost everyday. You have become my morning therapy. You have inspired me to start blogging. It is all your fault sweetie~

all smiles!


MMMMMMMMM I can smell the deliciousness!!! I used to bake one of these for my father on his birthday every year when I was a child, with my grandmother. You brought back some happy memories:)

That looks sooooo good! Too bad my kids are too picky and I'd end up eating the whole thing myself!


It looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.


Exactly the way I make mine...:) They are just the best made this way.


Mmm...this is my dad's favorite cake. I'll think I'll bake one and take it up to him.

Enjoy yours, it looks fabulous!

Miss T - there are always such delicious things baking at your house. You had me at '1/2 cup of butter'! -amy

Yummy--Surprise that there was any cake left for a picture! I will try skillet next time...funny, I just baked an upside down cake on Sunday (Jan 10) in celebration of my Dad's 83rd birthday! One of his favs (Dad has been gone 6 yrs now) from childhood to adulthood, many years I baked Dad a pineapple upside down cake for his birthday! =)


Most of my cake recipes come right from Cherry Hill Cottage anymore. I'm going to give this one a try.


I must make one of those!


That is my son's favorite cake! I make him one every year for his birthday!

Busy Little Quilter

That's how I make mine, too! Yours looks yummy!


Looks delicious and easy! Thanks for sharing.


Tina, this looks sooooo delicious.

Ok..I'm drooling! I think there is a pineapple upside down cake in my future, most likely tomorrow.

Tina~ Isn't it funny how MOMA knows best.
And to think we always say "I won't turn
into my mom". HA HA!! That looks good so
yes I will have to try this. I have a whole
set of cast iron. The skillet was given to
me as a wedding present from my sister for
a husband tamer. She said it works better
than a rolling pin.That was 43 years ago
so it is seasoned for sure. LOL. Your cake is so pretty and in that low light,hmmm~was Milton at work...:O)


My grandma used to make pineapple upside down cake just like that! I always thought it was such a "surprise" when she'd flip it out! It always looked so pretty! I still miss my grandma :-(


Tina, There is no better way to make this cake and it always looks so pretty on a footed cake plate. One more thing I always do is add the drained pineapple juice as the liquid in the cake mix, adding water to make the correct amount needed. This doesn't waste the juice and really adds to the flavor of the otherwise rather plain cake mix. Yum, I hear my skillet calling for butter now!!!


Tina, I love pineapple upside-down cake and have always used a cast iron skillet too. But alas, I have become lazy and do it in the microwave in about 14 minutes. Still pretty good too.


neat trick... I bet it comes out delicious!


This looks so good....Kathy

Sandy McClay

Can you tell me what size pan you used? I have two different sizses. I don't want to use the wrong size and ruin it! Thanks!


Tina you are the best! Thank you for always sharing such wonderful, yummy comfort foods! I have the skillet and must make this!

Have a wonderful weekend!


Teresa...Blooming on Bainbridge

Can you hear me shouting out in amazement way up here on Bainbridge Island!
I adore anything made in my black iron skillet!
Just spectacular!
You go girl!
And oh does it look cozy in that lamp lit kitchen!


This looks so wonderful! It reminds me of my Grandma....but she never made it in a skillet. Too bad I'm on a darn diet!

Julie Harward

Thanks so much for this, I am going to make it! I saw this on Martha Stewert years ago, I even bought a skillet but then I never made it! I will this weekend...SO easy and SO good! Come say hi :D


That's exactly how my mom made her's! Mmmm...so good. I need to make one of these soon!

Thanks for the reminder!


Oh perfect for ending a stressful week! :)


Yum! I'll have to try this soon.


Becky from Tennessee

Oh Tina, this brings back such
fond and happy memories of my
Momma. She, too, baked hers
in one of her old cast iron
skillets. I have never made
one because my sweet hubby
doesn't like pineapple and it
would be waaaaay too much for
me to eat. I know... I'll just
come over and help you and
Milton eat yours!! heehee!



This makes me want to buy a old iron skillet somewhere~~~maybe ebay! Thank-you for sharing this secret.


I have never tried this. Will do this weekend...can't wait!!!


Marjorie Smith

oh how great to find someone else bakes theirs in an iron skillet. That is how
Momma taught me to make them, the taste is just Delicious.
