Pineapple Upside Down Cake
I did not sleep well at all last night. I don't know if it was because of the 4PM cup of coffee I had yesterday afternoon, but I'm practically sure it has to do with the quick trip my husband and my dad took to Manila. I tossed and turned around in my bed until about 2AM until I got a message that they arrived safely. I know it's a quick one hour airplane ride, but being away halfway around the world stresses me out. Same thing when I woke up this morning (woke up wayyyyy too early!). I was anxious to get a message that they were back home safe. I got it around lunch time and we talked right away. My dad got his new passport and husband's visa is safely waiting for him. Finally, some good news - which is a quick break from the bad news we've been having!
To get me out of this stress funk, I de-stressed by baking a Pineapple Upside Down Cake. A recipe I got from the French food application, Marmiton. Of course, I added some personal touches. But it's not yet the perfect version I had envisioned. I find that I didn't have enough pineapple rings and there are other little tidbits I still have to work on. But I will share with you a photo of what we will be having as dessert tonight. If you have any tips, please please please share! :)
