Pineapple Upside Down Dessert

pastryparrot1's picture
This dessert seems to be a failed upside down. The pineapple caramelizes and sticks to the pan so when you invert it the cake crumbles. No worries! You will spoon it into ramekins and serve it with ice cream. Your pineapple will be caramelized, chewy and delicious!
