Pineapple upside-down cake
|Main ingredient(s)||Batter, fruit (apples, pineapples, cherries)|
Usually chopped fruits—such as apples, pineapples, or cherries—and a butter and sugar topping are placed on the bottom of the pan before the batter is poured in, so that they form a decorative topping once the cake is inverted.
Traditional upside-down preparations include the American pineapple upside-down cake, French Tarte Tatin, Rocky Road upside-down cake, and Brazilian Bolo de banana. It is also well known in Hawaiian culture.
In the sitcom Dad's Army, upside-down cakes are often mentioned by Private Godfrey, played by the late actor Arnold Ridley, because his sister Dolly makes them. A pineapple upside-down cake was also featured on Season One of The Good Wife, starring Juliana Margolis and Chris Noth. In the scene, Chris Noth joked about a pineapple-upside down cake to let his kids know everything was going to be alright.
