On Halloween, after trick-or-treating, Em came down with h1n1. After a long week+ of fevers, coughing, TiVo - when she was feeling better she decided to try her hand at making a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. This was no easy task, the egg whites had to be whipped to peaks, the sugar caramelized in a pan, this wasn't anything like from the side of a Bisquick box.
First taste was - holy moly, that topping's sweet! Probably great with black coffee to balance the sweetness, or maybe vanilla ice cream would mellow it out; however, our take? Put it in the fridge and wait a day or two. Em and I had it for snack the other day, straight from the fridge, cold. It was really good.
