Old School Pineapple Upside Down Cake

There is everything to love about this simple satisfying cake. It turns out of the pan complete with fragrant caramelly, lusciousness on top. Nothing more to do but eat- especially while it’s still warm! I used a cast iron skillet here but a cake pan will work too of course. I started by melting about 1/4 c of butter in the skillet with a  1/4 c Brown Sugar and placing the pineapple in. I added Pecans because why not? And I’m not a fan of formaldehyde cherries. Let it cool a bit before adding the cake batter.

Then I mixed up the cake batter and poured it over and into the oven at 350
