Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is one of those old school dishes that probably almost everyone who had a grandma that cooked, made this. Super easy and really tasty. It happens to be our moms favorite dessert so we actually called 8 bakeries and grocery stores to see if we could buy one. Unfortunately not one of them made them anymore so we had to create our own. Borrowed from Betty Crocker, this cake will satisfy your sweet tooth and bring back those fantastic childhood memories. Enjoy this bastard!

  • 1 can (20 oz) pineapple slices in juice, drained, juice reserved
