Frozen Pineapple Upside-Down Dessert

Nicole Bredeweg


This was my Dad's absolute favoritest dessert -- but only my Grandma (his mom) could make it. She wasn't secretive, she just didn't measure anything or have anything written down. But my mom finally made Gram step through the process so we'd have the recipe. Now that my mom's not with us, either, I made it a priority to find this recipe and see if I could duplicate it. And I think I did pretty well -- except Gram used an old-fashioned ice cube tray, but all I have are new-fangled pans. So the balance MAY be off a little from my memory, but it still tastes FABULOUS!
