i recently visited the local orchard and ended up with 17 lbs of apples, not to mention 30 lbs of peaches. anyway after using some of this wonderful fresh fruit in a few recipes and freezing some also, i started craving something wonderfully sweet and moist. so after going through MANY recipes i found an old pineapple upside down cake my mom used to make, which was awesome, i made a few changes and ended up with exactly what i wanted. you just cant go wrong when it comes to mom's recipes!
