Easy Pineapple Upside-Down Cake 🍍

A lovely pineapple upside-down cake recipe that’s incredibly straightforward to make. Excellent for a summer dessert!

This easy pineapple upside-down cake is one of my all-time favorite summer desserts. It’s refreshingly sweet, and the tropical flavors of the pineapple and rum make it feel like a real vacation in a cake. Plus, it’s super uncomplicated to make – no special baking skills required!

For the finest Pineapple Cake, use fresh pineapple. The vanilla and citrus fragrance lightly permeates the batter. The sticky topping is made of butter, brown sugar, mild cinnamon, and fresh pineapple.

Simple and delicious!

We adore serving this cake warm with a little whipped cream, but ice cream will taste just as good. Consider this a “refined” version of traditional pineapple upside-down cake.
