A little background on my mom = she’s the person who birthed me. I’ve known her almost since I was born(in case you didn’t put that together). She’s Mexican and had a red-headed baby, which makes her weird. I mean awesome.
We celebrated today because of work stuff tomorrow.
My mom’s only request for her birthday cake was – “something good”. Since I had complete free reign I decided to look up a recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake. A while back Bobbi Flay did a throw down with it and I’ve been wanting to try it since.
My main requirement was – I wanted a recipe that called for baking the cake in an iron skillet (as they did on the show). I didn’t use the Flay recipe, but did come across another Food Network winner. I used an Emeril Recipe found here.
I’m always tempted to try and make recipes healthier, but when you’re baking a cake for someone else I think it’s important to just stick with the recipe. Birthday cakes are not the time to be experimenting. They are a time for celebrating!
Since the cast iron skillet is already super heavy on it’s own the last part is the hardest. I was scared to take it out of the pan! I had to flip it over when the skillet wass still super hot and it’s super heavy aaaaand there’s a little part of me that was scared it wasn’t going to come out in one piece!!!
I did it! It came out great and I was proud
My piece with some Moose Tracks ice cream. So.so.good.
See you in the morning!
