Smoky Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Smoky Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Directions


Over the years I've baked several of these cakes in a regular oven, but cooking one on the grill was definitely inspired by the Pelletsmoking.com forum: TTNuge's Dutch Oven thread, CaterQ's Peach Pioneer Cobbler, Big Poppa's mention of smoked caramelized pineapple, HoDeDo & Deb's smoked nuts. Then... Sparky mentioned smoked Cherries for margaritas which really got my mouth watering).

I got to thinking... Caramelized pineapple, smoked cherries & nuts, rustic cake... Aha! I had a recipe that could utilize all those and it called for being baked in a cast Iron skillet which was perfect for the grill!

Here's my adaptation of a Pineapple Up-Side-Down Cake. This cake is made in three stages: The topping, The batter base & the beaten egg whites which are then folded into the batter making it very fluffy and light almost like a sponge cake.


Topping:
1/4 cup melted Butter
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 can of Pineapple Rings pack in pineapple juice - RESERVE THE JUICE!
Maraschino Cherries & Pecan Halves

In a large 9" or 10" cast iron skillet melt the butter and spread the brown sugar into an even layer. Arrange the pineapple rings, cherries and Pecan halves like shown in the picture.


The Batter:
3 Eggs - Separated
1 cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt optional, but helps to balance the sweet flavor)
1/2 cup of the reserved Pineapple Juice

In a mixing bowl, beat the Egg yolks until smooth & pale yellow. Add the dry ingredients & Pineapple Juice & mix into a stiff batter. Set aside. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form then set aside in the fridge to keep cold.

Put the skillet with the cake topping in a 325°-350° pit to smoke and caramelize for 5 - 10 minutes. While that's happening GENTLY fold the egg whites into the batter. After the topping has smoked, spread the cake batter over the topping and bake for 45 min. to 1 hour until lightly brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool then invert the cake onto a serving plate.

This Cake turned out fluffy & moist. The pineapple topping was caramelized & gooey with a slight smokiness that was out of this world.


Thanks, I hope you enjoy!
