How do you make a classic Pineapple Upside-down Cake recipe even better? Double it of course.

This two-layer Pineapple Upside-down Cake has the usual features of the traditional recipe including canned pineapple rings and maraschino cherries – but it’s twice as good.

The ingenious twist with this version is that you simply make two cakes and layer them together.

You don’t even need any filling or frosting between the two cakes – the syrupy brown sugar and pineapple topping makes a perfect center layer. Possibly the easiest layer cake around.

I was very excited to discover you can actually buy specialty pans to bake pineapple upside-down cakes. There are pineapple-shaped indentations in the base to guide you where to position your pineapple rings. Ok – so maybe a pineapple upside-down cake pan isn’t a baking necessity, be geez it’s fun.

Back to this cake, the biggest challenge with this recipe is getting the second cake, which becomes the top layer, perfectly positioned. But don’t fret, the recipe gives you good instructions and pictures to help you get this right.
