Since a good cast iron skillet can be passed down from generation to generation, making Pineapple Upside Down Cake in one instead of baking it in a cake pan can be an easy way to celebrate the traditions of home cooking for friends and family.

Best of all, when baked in a cast iron skillet, you are rewarded with a sweetly crusty carmelized sugar topped cake that your guests won’t soon forget.

Enjoy!
