Pineapple Upside down cake

I have forever been a fan of the gorgeous glassy appearence of the upside down cakes. <3.

It is an art to decide the artwork that should be placed at the bottom of the cake pan, before we pour the fluffy batter on top. A lot of people like the blonde look on the cake, but I love the caramel color brown sugar gives to the base. I based me recipe on the classic cake recipe I found on Sally’s blog
