Pineapple Upside Up Pound Cake

Ginger Duncan Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

A pineapple pound cake with bits of pineapple in it and a brown sugar glaze. Putting the glaze on just as the cake comes out of the oven allows the glaze to soak into the cake. Then you drizzle a little glaze over each slice before you serve it as well. It tastes like a pineapple upside down cake.

Decorating With Sliced Almonds

Decorating With Sliced Almonds

Sliced almonds can be tricky to work with because they are delicate. If you are using them for decorating, gently pour opened bag of almonds onto flat surface. They will break easily when picking up, or going throuth to find just the right ones, tread lightly using just one or two fingers. Use any remaining broken pieces for garnishes or in salads.
