The sixty-fourth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Comfort Food Fix, on page 297. The theme for this week was chosen by me: Let's Make Cake in honor of Margaret's birthday.
Ingredient list: butter, brown sugar, pineapple rings, flour, whole-wheat pastry flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, water, buttermilk, canola oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
This week was Margaret's birthday and while EK doesn't have a lot of cake recipes, she does have a few where she changed up the ingredients to make you feel like you are having your old favorite version but in fact are eating a tasty slimmed down version. While this doesn't look like a traditional birthday cake, it is very delicious and worthy of company/celebration status.
I made individual cakes because we don't eat a lot of cake here and it seemed like I could make a couple little ones to share without there being a lot of leftovers which would eventually just get tossed as, well, we don't eat a lot of cake around here now that Matt is out of the house and state with no chance of a "drive by" eating possibility. Definitely a repeat, Mark loves pineapple upside-down cake and this is a good one.
