Grandma W used to make pineapple upside down cake for Grandpa. This is my version of that wonderful flavored cake I remember from my childhood. I make it in camp quite often, and everyone loves it. Do not substitute any other type of doughnut, it won't come out right!

How to Make Tortoise's Campfire Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Layer on foil: Pat butter, doughnut, pineapple ring (pull out of the juice so some of the juice goes on the doughnut, don’t drain the can), brown sugar in the hole, pat butter, cherry. Twist foil on top, put on side of campfire to heat.
    Tortoise’s Note: I have made these as a foil pack and in pie irons. Do not substitute powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar doughnuts, they get gummy.
