Fun Easter Desert || Pineapple Upside Down Cake Add To Your Easter Menu
For our family, at Easter dinner one of the traditional desserts we have served for years is a traditional pineapple upside down cake recipe. My mother always made pineapple upside down cake in the spring as a light Sunday dessert. Jim’s mother has a fabulous skillet recipe that I have made once we got married. I do not have many recipes from my mother so I have loved that Jim’s mom shared her recipes from the 40’s and 50’s. Both my mom and Jim’s mom were married, raising their children, and being creative cooks in these years

I want to share our family traditional skillet pineapple upside down cake which we make every Easter. I also have a new pineapple shaped baking pan I found in the close out isle at a kitchen store. I loved the cute shapes and I was planning a dinner party and wanted a dessert. This pan was so unique and I could make individual servings.

The bright colors of yellow and green of this cake start me thinking of the bright colors of spring. Make this recipe for your family for a special dinner any time or as a dessert for Easter. Our family also make a Lamb Cake for Easter which I will post later and provide the link.
Tip for New Cooks:
Both this traditional skillet pineapple upside down cake recipe and the mini pan cake recipe are basic and simple. Just gather your ingredients before you start and it will be mixed in no time. The cakes keep well if you need to make a dessert ahead if you are are having friends over or going to a family function. If you have only baked from a box mix do not be afraid. This is very simple with simple ingredients.
