Nicole’s Best Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Tips

“Vintage desserts are the best desserts,” according to culinary producer Nicole McLaughlin (a.k.a. NicoleMcMom). So it’s no surprise that she loves this fruity, moist, and perfectly sweet cake. Here are a few of her favorite tips for making the best pineapple upside-down cake of your life:
  Chicken Kung Pao

· For extra flavor, use a mixture of the canned pineapple juice and water (instead of just water) in your cake mix.
· Don’t let the cake cool completely in the skillet, as this could cause sticking. Nicole likes to let it sit for about 10 minutes – then she releases it from the pan while it’s still warm. She also loosens the side with an offset spatula before turning the cake out.
· This gorgeous cake is perfect for serving as-is. However, Nicole likes to finish each slice off with a dollop of homemade whipped cream and another cherry.
