If you like trying out old-fashioned recipes, then you will love Nana's Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe. This pineapple cake recipe is made in a cast iron skillet just like Nana used to make it. For an extra fluffy cake, egg whites are folded into the cake batter of this delicious cake. To make this easy Southern recipe, begin by melting butter in the cast iron skillet. Then, sprinkle brown sugar on top of the butter and layer pineapple slices and cherries on top of the sugar. Next, whip up the fluffy cake batter and pour it over top of the fruit. Bake the cake in the oven and invert it once it has cooled to display the beautiful pineapple rings. Everyone will be asking how you made this pineapple upside down cake!
