Family Favorites...Individual Pineapple Upside Down Cake

 This recipe from Taste of Home calls for canned unsweetened pineapple rings. It is similar to most pineapple upside down cakes, except it is served in individual serving dishes. It was quickly made, the cake was very good and you can make just for the two or four of you with no leftovers. I doubled the recipe and thought I didn’t have enough cake batter. It was enough batter though it sure doesn't look like it at the time. I think the next time I make these however, I will use 8 ounce ramekins instead of the 10 ounce called for just to have a little more of the cake in each serving. If you need to make them fit, just cut a triangle piece out of the Pineapple ring. Best served warm.

 In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Beat in the milk, vanilla and remaining 3 tsp butter just until combined, spoon over pineapple.

  1. It looks good.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. Tastes good, hope you have a good weekend also.

  2. Love the individual servings
    For just hubby and myself, that is all I use is my ramekins but I do use well drained crushed pineapple in place of the rings only because I am more apt to have the crushed pineapple on hand more so than the rings.
    Hubby really isn't that much of a pineapple lover so I don't use as much on his dessert, which leaves me getting his extra pineapple :} of which I don't mind a bit.

    1. Hey Colleen, Extra pineapple is always good. I have used crushed pineapple in place on a regular cake but hadn't thought about it on the small ones. I am going to try that as that is also what I usually I have on hand. I find that I can make a larger recipe and freeze them in the ramekins and they keep well.
