When I was about 3 years old I remembered my mother use to make a pineapple upside down cake in an iron skillet.
So one boring afternoon trying to recapture my childhood, I put together this from my own imagination of what a pineapple upside down cake should be.

This is NOT your Momma's Pineapple
Upside Down Cake!
