Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe

We always make the most of days off school and we love baking in the kitchen. Today Kathleen and her favorite stuffed animal Kitty will be featured as my little assistants :-)

First we preheat the oven to 350 degrees and set out all the ingredients we need to get started.

4 Ramekins
3 Tablespoons butter melted
4 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup sliced pineapple
1 egg
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup flour
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
Confectioner's sugar

Brush the ramekins with the melted butter.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon or more or less depending on taste, of brown sugar into ramekins.

Be sure to have your real cat "supervisor" on hand ;-) LOL.

Elvis loves being a part of everything.

Then place the sliced pineapple on top of the brown sugar.

Next in mixing bowl, add the egg.

Then add the buttermilk.

Then the rest of the melted butter.

Add the vanilla and whisk wet ingredients together.

Then stir in flour.

Next add the sugar.

Then the baking powder.

Then the baking soda.

And finally a pinch of salt! Mix together well.

Mix till well blended and smooth.

Divide batter into the ramekins, filling each about 1/2 way.

Place in a 350 degree over and bake about 20 minutes until toothpick comes out clean through the middle.

Let cool, then remove from ramekins and cool completely.

Place on a pretty plate and add some confectioner's sugar over top :-)

Enjoy!!! Delicious dessert and a math lesson and life lesson for cooking :-)

                                             Have a wonderful day! Many Blessings!

YUM!!!! I've been dehydrating tons of pineapple lately. My college girl requested some sent to a friend of hers and my high schooler asked that I make some for her too. It's amazing how fast they'll go through 10 cans of sliced pineapple...
