Been on my "List" of things to cook and she wasn't doing it at Athens fest :sick: :(



Cast Iron Skillet Pineapple Upside Down Cake


1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored,eyes removed, and sliced
1 pkg butter recipe cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup water
3 whole eggs


Melt 1/2 c. butter in 10-inch cast iron skillet (a deep one is best). Add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add chopped pecans to mixture just before taking off fire.

Set skillet off heat and then add prepared pineapple. Slice pineapple into rings. (I chop a couple rings into pieces for added pineapple between the slices in bottom of skillet.) Arrange pineapple on top of brown sugar mixture. Maraschino cherries may be placed around at this time.

Prepare cake mix as directed on box. If there is juice from pineapple, that can be used instead of the water to make the 2/3 c. of liquid. Add remaining butter, eggs, and liquid to cake mix stir until thoroughly beaten. Pour on top of pineapple mixture.

Place in green egg indirect at 350 degrees. No lid on skillet. Check every 20 minutes and rotate to ensure even cooking.
Bake time is about 1 hour but check with wooden toothpick for doneness. Let cake cool for at least 10 minutes. Run knife around cake to loosen from sides of skillet. Invert onto serving plate

Lake Conroe Eggers, wife Colleans fault! :P
