Michael Kors "Grandma Bea's Pineapple Upside Down Cake


I love pineapple upside down cake and can't wait to try Michael Kors Grandma Bea's Pineapple Upside Down Cake as seen on Martha Stewart.

"Makes one 9-inch round cake
  • 1 (20.5-ounce) can pineapple rings in juice
  • 3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup lightly packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Drain pineapple rings and discard juice. Place pineapple on a paper-towel-lined plate to drain, turning once, for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt 6 tablespoons butter and transfer to a 9-inch round cake pan to evenly coat bottom; sprinkle brown sugar evenly over bottom of cake pan and top with an even layer of pineapple rings and pecans, if using. Set prepared cake pan aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla until well combined; set aside.
  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat remaining 6 tablespoons butter with granulated sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture alternating with egg mixture; beat until batter is just combined.
  6. Pour batter in prepared cake pan and transfer to oven. Cook until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Run a small sharp knife around edge of pan to release cake. Place a plate on top of cake pan and invert cake onto plate; serve.
