Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Yield Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 round pineapple slices (canned or fresh), 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 hamburger buns, split
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. In a large ovenproof skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Arrange the pineapple slices in a single layer in the skillet. Top each slice with half a bun, cut-side down. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. With a spatula, invert each cake onto an individual plate. Serve with the ice cream, if desired.
