Spicy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Spicy Pineapple Upside Down Cake
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can pineapple rings, juice drained and reserved
  • 8 maraschino cherries, or more as needed
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups molasses
  • 1 cup hot water


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pour the melted butter in a 9x13-inch baking dish, then sprinkle the brown sugar all around. Arrange the pineapple rings in a single layer in the baking dish, placing a maraschino cherry in the center of each ring. Set aside.
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl. Beat 1 cup butter and the white sugar with an electric mixer in another bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and molasses. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the liquid ingredients, alternating with the hot water and reserved pineapple juice, until just combined. Slowly pour the batter evenly into the prepared pan, being careful not to move the arranged pineapple slices.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool the cake in the pan completely on a wire rack. When the cake is cool, run a paring knife between the cake and the edge of the pan. Cover the cake pan with a plate, and invert it to tip the cake out of the pan and onto the plate.
