Heirloom Pineapple Upside Down Cake

60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
10 ingredients

I have been making this recipe for 25+ years but it is actually from the 1920's. This is an unusual cake and should be cooked in a cast iron skillet. The batter isn't like an angel food cake, at all. It is crunchy on the outside but chewy. Not light and fluffy like most people are used to. And it is very beautiful. And very rich.
