Best Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Best Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is the Best Pineapple Upside Down Cake.  Why do I say that? Well just look at that golden cake, topped with juicy pineapple slices, sweet maraschino cherries and a yummy brown sugar topping.  And the best part?  It’s a cake mix.  Yes indeed.

We use cake mixes every now and then to make a hectic schedule easier.  Life should be easy right?  Our Italian Almond Biscotti is just such a recipe – it’s one of our faves, and comes from a famous chef in Italy!

This is the Best Pineapple Upside Cake Recipe and one of the easiest cakes to bake, full of butter, brown sugar & sweet pineapple goodness! It takes no time at all!

 


 

 

Do you know this is the very first time I’ve baked a Pineapple Upside Down Cake?  No really!  I always see so many recipes for these yummy cakes everywhere and everyone loves them.  NOW I know why!

That yummy, buttery brown sugar that sinks into the bottom (top?) of this amazing Pineapple Upside Down Cake and mixes with the pineapple and cherries, well I’m a believer now!

This is the Best Pineapple Upside Cake Recipe and one of the easiest cakes to bake, full of butter, brown sugar & sweet pineapple goodness! It takes no time at all!

 

And because it’s baked in a 13 X 9 pan, so easy to make and take to our next family get together,  you can make it literally in minutes!

So what is a Pineapple Upside Down Cake?

It really is only a few ingredients.  There are lots of recipes out there, mine is based on one from Betty Crocker, and there are other good ones too.  I like Sally’s Baking Addiction’s recipe too. 

Melt butter in the bottom of your 13 X 9 pan and then generously sprinkle brown sugar, covering the bottom of the pan.

Next place the pineapple slices, and insert the maraschino cherries in the middle of the slices.

In a separate bowl, mix up your favorite yellow cake mix.  They usually call for eggs and oil.  Pour the cake batter over all and smooth the top.

Pop in the oven and bake at 350F/180C for 42 to 48 minutes.

When you take it out of the oven, invert the cake onto a heat proof plate right away, leaving the pan in place so that the lovely butter and brown sugar drizzle down into the cake.

This is the Best Pineapple Upside Cake Recipe and one of the easiest cakes to bake, full of butter, brown sugar & sweet pineapple goodness! It takes no time at all!

That’s it!  Easy Peasy.  And you have the yummiest cake to serve to family and friends.  Only you will know how easy it was to bake!

Getting ready to bake this amazing chocolate cake at the trailer.

I just love potlucks.  They’re such a wonderful way to get folks together to celebrate an occasion, or just because.  AND I’ve found that it’s a great way to find new recipes from those amazing cooks and bakers out there!

My neighbour Sue brought this amazing Chocolate Cake to the Canada Day Potluck at the trailer park this past July 1st.

One bowl scratch cakes are the best and this Chocolate Buttermilk Bundt Cake is no exception!

I love to whip up a cake from scratch.  Everything goes into one bowl and gets whipped up in no time at all.  You all know how I love to tweak recipes just a little.  I’d been seeing lots of buttermilk cake recipes recently.  So that got me thinking…..

Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake?

Instead of sour milk, like the original recipe called for, why not buttermilkCakes made with buttermilk have an extra rich flavour, and I remember growing up how much my Dad loved buttermilk!  Desserts made with buttermilk were really popular in our home.

And of course I wanted to created the very BEST buttermilk chocolate bundt cake ever!

For this Chocolate Buttermilk Bundt Cake recipe, the addition of a cup of hot water along with the cup of buttermilk and a cup of oil, makes for a very moist cake!

And that of course contributes to one very yummy cake!

TIPS FOR A PERFECT CHOCOLATE BUTTERMILK BUNDT CAKE

  • You can make this in a 13 X 9 pan, or use a Bundt (10″ X 4″) pan.  Sue made hers in a 13 X 9, so I thought I would try the Bundt.  
  • Follow all of the instructions carefully
  • Make sure you line whatever pan you use and grease it really well (butter or shortening and I usually use aluminum foil to line the pan).
  • Once the cake is baked and cools, invert the pan on a platter or plate so that you can peel away the foil and then set it right side up.
  • Make the hot water frosting right away so that lovely warm chocolate can cover your deliciously moist chocolate buttermilk bundt cake.

Easy Eggnog Cheesecake With Caramel Pecan Topping

Easy Eggnog Cheesecake With Caramel Pecan Topping

Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe

 

eggnog cheesecake, whole cake, and slice on bottom with white lettering Eggnog Cheesecake

Two things happen when we all get excited when Eggnog hits the grocery shelves during the Holidays:

First, we load up our grocery carts with this delicious treat, giddy with anticipation of cozy afternoons, sipping rum & eggnog with a good book.

Second, we just know that we have to offer Eggnog when entertaining during the holidays, but that there will be lots left over.

So you probably wonder, and I know I do:

What the heck do I do with all of this leftover eggnog?

Well that’s what this post will help you with!

What do I do with all this leftover eggnog? This Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe with Praline Topping will take care of that problem. Easy Peasy. Click To Tweet

Why an Eggnog Cheesecake?

I wanted to make this Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe last Christmas, but I just wasn’t able to get to it with everything else we had on the go.

Life’s like that, right?

Last year’s ‘showstopper’ was my Chocolate Raspberry Tart and oh boy, it was amazing!

Our son-in-law, James, who is also Dad to the famous Louisa, loves cheesecake.

So knowing I was in charge of desserts for Christmas Eve, there could be no question, that this Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe would be on the menu!

I adapted this recipe from one I found on allrecipes.com.  If you haven’t been there you should really check it out, it is a HUGE database of recipes created by folks just like us!

This Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe is so rich and creamy - it's like having a Rum & Eggnog for Dessert! And the best part is the yummy Praline topping! Just so much goodness wrapped up like a present!

My adaptations?  Well just look at that Pecan Praline Topping, for starters.  The perfect match for all that creamy eggnog, nutmeg and cream cheese don’t you think?

 Instant Pot, Slow-Cooker or Oven?

I’ve been baking quite a few cheesecakes in either my slow cooker or Instant Pot lately.  It’s been awhile since I actually baked one on the oven.  One of the issues I’ve had when baking cheesecakes in the past is that the top would crack, because the oven was either too dry or too hot – or both!

This Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe is so rich and creamy - it's like having a Rum & Eggnog for Dessert! And the best part is the yummy Praline topping! Just so much goodness wrapped up like a present!

A Very Important Step!

I also would recommend that you place parchment paper in the bottom of your spring form pan before you make the graham cracker crust, so that the cheesecake will slide off the bottom easily once it is cooled.  You won’t believe how many times I forget this important step!

lining springform pan with parchment paper

Line bottom of springform pan with parchment paper and grease

Step-By-Step Instructions:

This Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe calls for the graham cracker crust to be pre-baked, so before you do that, wrap the bottom of the pan in aluminum foil – two layers for sure.  Then when you add the cheesecake filling, the entire pan is placed inside a large roasting pan, with about 1″ of water all around.  We use a 9″ springform pan for this cheesecake, so a larger pan works well. (see the video below!)

What’s a Bain Marie?

This is where my love of baking shows has really helped me!  When I’ve watched the Great British Baking Show or even the new Great Canadian Baking Show, the experienced bakers use a ‘water bath’ or bain marie as it’s also known.  What this does is keep the cheesecake baking at a consistent temperature, and allows the steam to keep the inside of the oven moist.  You can see how I’ve done in this in the video below.

 

Once the eggnog cheesecake is baked, remove it from the water bath and let it cool for about 10 minutes.  Then slide a knife around the edge to loosen the cake from the pan, but still keep the ring around the cake – you can loosen the clip just don’t take it out.  I like my cheesecakes to set up overnight, and that is exactly what I did here.

When you are ready to serve your deliciously Easy Eggnog Cheesecake, run your knife under really hot water, it will make the slicing process so much easier!

Bon Appetit!

This Easy Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe is so rich and creamy - it's like having a Rum & Eggnog for Dessert! And the best part is the yummy Praline topping! Just so much goodness wrapped up like a present!

Slow Cooker Magic that is.

Have you made a cake in your Slow Cooker yet?  Well what are you waiting for?  I’ve made the creamiest cheesecakes and now the most delicious ‘sponge’ as Mary says on the Great British Baking Show.  (love that show)

So what or who is Harvey Wallbanger?  A cocktail that became popular in the 70’s includes vodka, OJ and Galliano.  Galliano is a delicious Italian liqueur that has a light vanilla flavor to it. Garnished with maraschino cherries.  Yum. Yum.

There are many recipes out there, most of them include vodka and a lot of Galliano.  This recipe includes 3 tbsp. in total.  That’s all.

Now quick and easy desserts are what we’re all about here at Pie Lady Bakes.  You will love this recipe:

Mix it all up and put in a baking pan.  I used my 7” spring form pan, the one that fits in both my slow cooker and Instant Pot.  I love the shape.

This recipe is adapted from the gals at the Fix It and Forget It Cookbook.  I love their recipes and have tried several of them.

The secret to using a slow cooker to bake is to make sure the moisture gets whisked away from the cake.  So to address that, a tip is to top the slow cooker with several sheets of paper towel, just underneath the lid.  Leaving the lid slightly ajar also helps.

Now here is something I did not think of.  That half way through cooking, to rotate my cake pan so that it gets golden all around.  And to adjust the lid so that steam comes out the opposite side.  This will give you a cake that is well baked and golden all over.

The orange glaze on this Harvey Wallbanger Cake is a yummy confection of vanilla instant pudding, icing sugar, orange juice and Galliano.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Light vanilla flavors, mixed with orange for a zesty combination.  The cake and glaze have instant vanilla pudding mixed in.  Now I think that is magical in itself.

Be sure to let the cake cook completely, before you apply the glaze.  I think even putting the cake in the refrigerator for an hour is a great idea.

Enjoy,

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 tsp hot water
Glaze
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp orange zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C
  2. Squeeze the orange and add all of the juice to the sour milk and set aside
  3. Put the cranberries and leftover orange (remove large bits of pith) and grind fairly fine in your food processor. Set this aside as it will be added to the cake batter at the end.
  4. Cream butter, sugar and egg yolks together
  5. Add the sour milk mixture
  6. Stir in the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  7. The batter will be quite dense at this point.
  8. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff
  9. Fold in the orange/cranberry mixture into the batter
  10. Add the beaten egg whites
  11. Pour the batter into the greased bundt pan
  12. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
  13. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
  14. Invert the cake onto a plate and then invert again so that it is top side up.
  15. While the cake is baking mix up the glaze to have it ready to pour on the cake once it has cooled for about 10 - 15 minutes. The cake will still be warm enough for the glaze to nicely melt into the cracks and crevices on top.
Recipe Notes

Note: To make 1 cup (250 mL) sour milk for baking, use 1 tbsp (15 mL) vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to equal 1 cup (250 mL). Stir and let stand for 5 minutes before using. This will give the right amount of acidity for the recipe.
