Low Carbish Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple is not the lowest carb fruit.  Berries, like my beloved blueberries, are amongst the lowest carb fruits.

SpecialK keeps buying fresh pineapples, so he can use the pineapple tool we own.  He buys more fruit than he will eat, and expects me to finish the rest.  Sorry, dear, that is not happening.

I had made this cake, and a cobbler previously, and really enjoyed the cake.  I have thoughts of how I will use the cake base, and it occurred to me to try pineapple upside down cake.

I made the cake base, skipping the blueberries, the cream cheese and the crumbs on top.

I oiled the Pyrex pan I was using.  With our tool to cut pineapple, you get a slinky-like piece of pineapple, which Special K then cuts.

I put 1/4 C of my Xylosweet/blackstrap molasses mixture in the bottom of the pan.  I laid pieces of pineapple on top, and the cake batter on top of that.  I baked it according to the directions for baking the cake, until a tester came out clean.

I let it cool in the pan for a while, then put a plate on top of the cake, and flipped it.  One piece of pineapple remained in the pan, until I coaxed it out and out it back in it’s place on the cake.

SpecialK declared that this cake tasted like pineapple upside down cake.  Success!
