Upside down Pineapple Cake

Spring season is here, so what’s better than a cake full of flavor. Pineapple cakes are so moist and tasty. The combination of cake with caramel is so good, you won’t be able to eat just one slice!

Why upside down? For this cake, we put all the decoration at the bottom of the pan so when we unmold it, we have all the decoration on top.

You can use fresh pineapples or canned ones, either way, you will end up with great results.

This recipe is perfect for birthdays, picnics or when unexpected guests are coming. They all gonna love it!
