Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I have been thinking about making this cake for a long time. OK, so it has been about a week. Now, at first I wanted to make chocolate raspberry cake which would be new, but then I decided I wanted to go with something tried and true, pineapple upside down cake it is.

I know what you are thinking, pineapple upside down cake it a lot of work. First you have to find a pan and then you have to make the brown sugar caramel and put the pineapple in the pan and put the little cherries in the pineapple and then make a cake. OR you have to go to the grocery store and buy one. That can be a total pain.

So, instead of making the traditional cake I decided to go with the next best thing (or perhaps even better...depends on the day). And just what is better than ooey, gooey cake? A cocktail, that's what!

Here are the ingredients:
If you haven't had UV Cake Vodka yet, stop reading this blog, get in your car and get yourself to the nearest liquor outlet. Seriously, it is that good.

This is a pretty easy drink to make, just add the pineapple juice to the vodka and you are on your way. Now, to make it a real glass of pineapple upside down cake you should add just a bit of grenadine. I didn't have any and I didn't want to buy any so I left it out. Really, it isn't necessary.
It is still really really good.

You can apparently make any kind of cake with the right mixer. Lemon cake, orange cake, root beer cake (ok, not a real cake but I think it would be good). We also tried a shot with cake vodka and Bailey's. It was very good.

The only warning I will give is that this stuff is dangerous. It tastes like frosting.

So, the next time you have a craving for cake, but don't want to bake-drink it!

Oh, and how was I planning on making chocolate raspberry cake? I was going to mix cake vodka with chocolate raspberry wine. I'll let you know how it turns out.


  1. Holy S*&*, Batman! Cake Vodka? It's like Cake Batter Ice Cream but not. So very dangerous!! :) :)

  2. You have no idea how dangerous it is! So very good.
