The Grandma’s Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is one of those classic recipes we all keep coming back. There’s a feeling of tradition we love, plus the taste is something we can never get enough. It is a perfectly easy butter cake baked in the top with caramelized pineapples that sounds like a fantasy for us. The Grandma’s Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is already practically frosty. No extra decoration is needed; the garnish gets baked in the cake.

I recall when we celebrated the taekwondo achievement of my brother, it was the first time I had this. It’s been a really hot day, and my mom was very excited because it’s the first tournament for my brother. She made this cake because it was a favorite of my brother.
