Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I finally did some baking after a long break. My last post really got me worked up! I started with a simple recipe that I have not tried … ever. 

Before anything else, I bought myself a new oven thermometer because just as I expected, the built in thermometer in my oven is busted. 

I got my recipe from Goldilocks Bake Book which I received as a gift from my very good friend, Faye. (I miss you Pepey!!)

Being the rebel that I am, I made a few shortcuts adjustments in this recipe. The photo on the bake book looks nothing like my end product but I know they are both delish! Can’t wait for my next session.
