  • Summary

    I can't even articulate how good this cake is. This is definitely a MUST MAKE. Caramelizing pineapple takes awhile, but I've included two options (stovetop and oven) that I've tested out for you. When caramelizing, be patient. Don't stop when the fruit has pale coloring; instead, wait until you have those gorgeous, dark-golden tones. You're going to want to start keeping caramelized pineapple on hand all the time for topping ice cream (and skillet cakes, duh.) Don't ask me how I know this.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 pineapple, cored and cubed (or 8 canned pineapple rings, cut in half)
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 1/8 cups cake flour
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 1/4 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter, cut into chunks
    • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
    • pinch of salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • vanilla bean ice cream (optional, for serving)
