Pineapple Upside-Dow Cake is an American classic dessert. The idea of cooking a fruit cake upside down, started centuries ago when cakes were cooked in cast iron skillets. Fruit and sugar were added in the bottom of the pan and a simple cake batter was placed on top and put it over the fire to cook.
Then the cake was flipped over onto a plate to show the pretty caramelized fruit and let the sugary juices run down the sides. The idea of the pineapple soon after 1911 when one of James Dole's engineer had invented a machine to cut his pineapples into nice rings.
