Classic Cake: Pineapple Upside-Down

I have always love old classic cake such as Pineapple Upside-Down. I remember how my mom and my aunt used to talk about this cake and how my aunt used to bake this cake when I was a little boy.

And recently I went to the supermarket and I found Josepine Pineapples from Philippines were on sale for a dirt cheap. So I bought 3 of them and thinking of using these pineapples specifically for Pineapple Upside-Down Cake. After almost two weeks keeping these pineapples in the bottom drawer of my refrigerator, I finally came to a perfect moment and mood to bake this wonderful cake.

I love the faint smell and taste of pineapples sip through the butter cake base. This is a nice moist cake and taste great to be eaten warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Such a great dessert to end any dinner or lunch or your snack break OR as a gift to your neighbor or friends.

Hell.... I'd become like Nigella Lawson raiding my refrigerator in the middle of the night and cut me a slice of this cake and warm it up a little bit in the microwave oven and eat it really quick before I go back bed. It felt so good when I do this but I will bitch about getting fatter later. But this this cake recipe is not from Nigella's cooking book though. It came from my aunt however I did some small change to her recipe just to perfect it the way I want it. And it work like magic.
