Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

I made this yesterday for smallgroup, and I think it went over well…at least I hope that it did. I must admit that sometimes I’m guilty of having “blonde moments” and I definitely had one while making this cake. So if this tip seems like common sense to you, I apologize, but before making this cake be prepared. When I was at the last step of the recipe (the part where you flip the cake upside-down), I realized that my skillet was 12 inches……and I don’t have any plates that big. I was frantically looking around for something to flip this cake onto before it cooled, all I could come up with was a charger. Not only did I forget to get a plate big enough, but the charger that I decided to use was plastic, so the edges were burnt off. Sometimes I just have to laugh at the things I do. Anyhow, here is the cake that I took on a burnt charger to smallgroup.

As soon as you wrote you turned it out on a charger I thought--oh dear, my changers are plastic, wonder what that would do?...I am so sorry you ruined your charger! I would have probably done that in a bind though, and thought of the problem just as the cake was landing on it--or rather, the edges of the iron skillet! That is a good point to make to be prepared with a plate.

LOL! I did not notice the burnt charger at all! This cake was delicious!

Oh, that sounds like something I would do. :)
