Cake turned upside down

​Reposted from May 2012… And yes I’m still on a diet lol! 😄

I recently started a self improvement project, a.k.a. weight loss plan… 😉 and found a great recipe for a pineapple upside down cake that uses less sugar and fat but still tastes fantastic!  Practically a miracle if you ask me.  I found the cake to be moist, and the pineapple carmelized perfectly I couldn’t have asked for a better turn out, really! Just try it for yourself, here is the recipe for a dieters dream pineapple upside down cake. Enjoy!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

4 Tbsp butter

1/4 cup light brown sugar or brown sugar splenda mix

1 can pinapple slices

1/4 cup reserved juice from pineapple

1 c. prepared vanilla cake mix

1 egg

In a cake pan on the stove melt 2 Tbsp of the butter and add 1/4 cup brown sugar, add the pineapple ring and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes on each side to allow the pineapple to carmelize. Remove from heat.

Melt the 2 remaining Tbsp of butter and combine with the egg, reservedpineapple juice and 1 c. of cake mix (dry)  Blend together thoroughly and pour over the pineapple.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.  Cool slightly and turn cake over onto cake plate while still warm.  And, VIOLA! a beautiful pineapple upside down cake!! Enjoy!
