Pineapple Upside Down Cake

pineapple upside down cake

I love pineapple upside down cake so when I was thinking of something to post to celebrate five years of Cookin’ Mimi I knew it would be the perfect choice.

I make mine a bit differently than most recipes I’ve found. I use crushed pineapple instead of sliced to be sure I get pineapple in every bite. I also use a pineapple cake mix for a flavor boost.

Before I get to the recipe I have to say a big thanks to my readers and a special thanks to some very special blogging friends.

Tabitha and all the other fabulous women in the Inspired Bloggers Network have been a source of encouragement for the past year. They’ve answered questions, given amazing suggestions, and have been so much fun to get to know.

Isabel, Nicole and the rest of the #SundaySupper team I’ve enjoyed working with y’all the past couple of months.

September marks another anniversary on the blog- two years with The Secret Recipe Club. April, Jane and all the other hosts and social media managers, thank you so much for all the hard work you put into the SRC.

Last but not least I have to thank all the bloggers who host link-ups. I know how much effort goes into maintaining and promoting one and I salute you.
