Last night Marty and I cooked a thank you lobster dinner for friends Karl and his wife, Kirsten. Karl, who is a contractor, was a huge help replacing 8 windows before we put the house on the market. And Kirsten helped me pack up stuff so that closets and cabinets would look bigger.
For the dessert course we cooked Pineapple Upside Down Cake (PUDC). We were testing another recipe for America's Test Kitchen. We were excited about baking this cake. We both love PUDC, but never make it. This is a cake from the 50's and 60's that went out of style. PUDC was the go to cake in that period of time. Now PUDC is showing up on restaurant menus again.
There are lots of pictures of the process. Many more than I usually post. It just seemed like there were more elements to show for this recipe.
Marty mixing up good stuff.
