And possibly a pudding when I serve it with custard or ice-cream – delicious!

Serve with ice-cream, cream or custard, or why not all three?
And it’s so easy and so low cost.
When I make one it lasts less than 30 minutes, seriously! 🙂

How long can I keep my Pineapple upside-down Cake
Pineapple Upside Down Cake will well for about 4 days or so in the fridge
Cover on a plate or seal in an airtight container and it will be fine refrigerated
As it sits it may get a little big more soggy – but it still tastes amazing
Yes you can freeze for up to 1 month.
To be honest I think it’s better fresh or out the fridge
