Looking for a baking project that will elicit all the oohs and ahhs? Look no further than Danielle Alvarez’s recipe for pineapple and ginger upside-down cake, from her new cookbook, Always Add Lemon. It’s sweet, spicy and practically decorates itself.
“I have a lot of love for upside-down cakes,” she writes. “They’re a perfect way to bring fruit and cake together without making separate components, and it looks so gorgeous. The best part is, this cake could be adapted to any fruit really: plums, nectarines, peaches, apricots, strawberries, blueberries or, in this case, my favorite of all the upside-down cakes, pineapple.”
A note from Alvarez: While the sugar and the cooking of the fruit will boost its flavor, if you want this to be a fabulous cake as opposed to a just-alright cake, make sure the fruit is sweet, juicy and ripe to start.
