We’ve taken the retro pineapple upside-down cake and updated it with our special recipe! Moist and made with extra-virgin olive oil and Greek yogurt, it’s on sale this weekend in our US and Canada stores. Pick up two cakes for $10 — one for you and one to share with a friend.
Availability and limits may vary by region, so you can contact your store for details. While supplies last. Most of our stores do not provide rain checks for sales like this.
“You know, I’m a baker at heart. I love doing scratch baking like I did for the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake,” Mary Larkins told me. She works at the Lamar Culinary Center – part of our flagship store in Austin, Texas. I tracked her down because, a year ago, she helped with test batches of the new Pineapple Upside-Down Cake that you’ll find in our bakery. The cake has since become a hit with our shoppers and, to honor that, we’re holding a three-day sale this weekend – two Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes for $10.
Get ‘em while they’re hot! The cakes are moist and delicious, Mary told me, “but I think it’s the yogurt that gives them that uniqueness.” The base of our exclusive cake features extra-virgin olive oil and Greek yogurt. This out-of-the-box combo gives the cake its signature taste: rich and buttery, with a dense crumb.
Baked with sweet pineapples on the bottom, the cake is turned over once removed from the pan. The caramelized fruit is now on top, and the yellow, glistening rounds look exquisite. But this cake isn’t just about good looks. “You can’t even imagine the flavor that comes out of [the fruit] when you bake it,” Mary added.
Inspired by the success of the original Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, our stores now offer different versions, swapping out toppings, seasonally.
The Pineapple Upside-Down Cake is an every-day-of-the-week cake, suited to both a dinner party on Friday night and weeknight supper. (You can serve it either chilled or at room temperature – it’s a no-fuss dessert.)
When I asked Mary how she likes to enjoy our Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, she chuckled and confessed, “Well…I just like something a little sweet with my coffee!”
