Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Life is funny. Maybe that's why we have the Pineapple Upside Down Cake! This quirky cake has been showing up around the holidays for my entire life. See, my 93 year old grandmother, Damma, is a big fan. She showcased this sweet treat whenever the opportunity arose, and each time that cake came out my grandfather Pops would fall in love with her all over again. I must admit, for me the treat was all about the visual, as even now I haven't fully developed a passion. If you are going to equate the Pineapple upside down cake with a particular holiday, I pick Independence Day! The fourth of July is fun and free; and is the quintessential 'home' for this Vintage Americana Treasure....
