Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake Pan

Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake Pan

One of the most popular upside down cakes out there is a pineapple upside down cake. Even though you can use apples,  berries and other fruits easily, pineapple is a classic because it develops a rich, caramel flavor as it bakes. All you need to bake an upside down cake is a regular cake pan, but since pineapple is popular, there are a variety of pans specifically designed for them. Large pineapple pans have rings that pineapple slices will neatly fit in to. But the Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake Pan pictured above trumps that because not only does it have a ring just the right size for a round of pineapple, but each cavity is pineapple shaped, complete with leaves on top. This means that every cake you bake will look just like a little pineapple.

The cavities on this pan are a little bit bigger than your typical muffin pan, and while I would still use a muffin pan for other small upside down cakes, pineapple will fit better into this pan shape and you won’t have to trim it down to try and squeeze all the fruit into each bup before baking.

    I’ve seen these and thought about getting one but I use a jumbo muffin pan and the rings fit perfectly in there and you can use it for so many other projects. Nice if you find a great deal but it would look odd for anything but pineapple in that one pan. 🙂

    These are adorable. I’m not a huge fan of the big pineapple upside down cakes, mostly because they’re not that pretty. But these are cute and fun!

    As a soap-maker, which means I do a lot of un-molding, my first thought is that those leaves won’t come out of the pan intact.

    Mary – I’m not sure how difficult soaps are to unmold, but this pan is nonstick and with a little oil brushed in the inside, you shouldn’t have any problems getting the cakes out intact.
