A lot of times I just bake because I like too. Sometimes I have a craving for something sweet. This cake is a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I was feeling "pineappley" yesterday and began baking this. It is very important to make sure you have all the ingredients before you start to bake. I laid them all out on the counter and to my surprise I didn't have enough cherries. Sooo it is very important to have a willing husband to go to the store for you to pick them up so you don't have to stop what you are doing. Thanks hon! Or someone you can count on!
One thing about this cake is that it always comes out looking pretty. The problem with baking is we like to eat it all. Since there are only two of us here, I shared it. Sharing is part of the fun. I love to see people enjoy food. It's the Italian in me!
