This is a real childhood love! Mom never let me see it assembled… just the heavenly smells of butter, brown sugar and punapple warming the house. Then we all gather round for the magic of flipping the skillet and seeing the beautiful golden fruit sparkle. Oh… my mouth watering memory.
Cast iron skillet(14 inch)
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 and 1/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 lrg eggs
3/4 cup milk
1-20 oz can of pineapple rings
1/2 cup brown sugar
Heat oven to 375.
Melt half stick butter 1/2 cup
Mix wet ingredients, egg, milk, melted butter , vanilla then add dry. Simple yellow cake one bowl. Prep pan .
Black skillet 14inch. over low heat melt 1/4 cup butter with brown sugar.
Once warm melted- do not bring to boil ( dont want andied cake) assemble your pinapple rings remove from heat. Add a halved marichino cherry forcolor. I personally dont like these but they add such color. Halved seem to work best- whole one seem to float in the batter move.
Carefully pour batter over fruit inpan.
Bake in 375 oven for 45 minutes or until toothpick pulls out clean.
Then its magictime. Use a heat safe plate.
I carefully takea knife and go around the outside of pan. Oven mits hold plat over pan and quickly flip. Ahhhhhhhhh !!!

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
