30 by 30: Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is one of those recipes on my 30 by 30 list that isn't necessarily fancy or complicated. It's just something that I realized I have never made and wanted to give it a shot.

There are SO many pineapple upside down cake recipes floating around out there. Honestly, I couldn't decide which one to use so I ended up just creating my own recipe.

It was AMAZING! So delicious, so juicy, and the fresh pineapple put it over the top. We inhaled this cake and I will definitely be making it again!
