Welcome to the August Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to bake Pineapple Upside Down Cake topped with Dole Whip inspired by this pin.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake Step By Step
First, prepare all ingredients. Gather ingredients to prepare the cake per instructions on the box.
Drain the can of pineapple, reserving the juice.
Spoon one tablespoon of brown sugar into each ramekin. Top that with one tablespoon of the drained crushed pineapple.
Add one half of a maraschino cherry to each ramekin in the center. Top with batter, making sure each ramekin has an equal amount of cake batter.
Bake for 27 to 30 minutes. Cool inside the ramekins on a cooling rack. When cooled, using a knife, cut around the outside of each ramekin and invert onto a plate. When ready to serve, scoop pineapple sherbet onto the plate and enjoy!
