We've not really made many desserts on the BGE. Mrs. G doesn't have a sweet tooth and I shouldn't make a cake or pie for myself. Ever since I saw this recipe for pineapple upside down cake, I knew I had to make it. Mrs. G had to go to work yesterday and with no plans for me, I decided to try it out. Cooked it indirect at 350 for one hour.

Making the bottom of the cake (that turns into the top later)




On to the Egg


Done after an hour


Finished


Sliced up


Man that was a good slice of cake!! Didn't have a smokey flavor at all. It was moist and that top layer was to die for. I'm going to have to take some over to my parents tonight at this is my Dad's favorite cake and I can't have it laying around or I'll eat it all.

Ingredients
■1/2 cup butter
■1 1/2 cup brown sugar
■1/2 cup pecans, chopped
■1 can crushed pineapples
■Marashino cherries (if desired)
■1 package Betty Crocker Super Moist Butter Recipe Cake Mix
■1/3 cup butter, melted
■1 cup water (or use some pineapple juice from the can to replace part of the water)
■3 whole eggs


Directions
1.Melt 1/2 cup of butter in a 10″ cast iron skillet (a deep one is best). Add brown sugar and stir until it dissolves. Add chopped pecans to the mixture just before taking off the heat. (This step can, as was, done inside on the stove)

2.Set skillet off heat and then add pineapple and Marashcino cherries if desired. (I did not add the whole can of pineapple, maybe about 1/2 to 3/4, however much you like)


3.Prepare cake mix per directions on the box. You may substitute some of the pineapple juice instead of the one cup of water. Stir thoroughly and pour on top of pineapple mixtures.


4.Place skillet in Big Green Egg at 350 on top of placesetter (or indirect on other grills or smokers) on top of little green feet. Check every 20 minutes and rotate to ensure even cooking. Bake time is about 1 hour, but check with toothpick for doneness.


5.Let cake cool for at least 10 minutes. Run knife around cake to loosen from sides of skillet. Invert onto serving plate.

Thanks King. Just finished another slice. Think I'm going to take the rest to my Dad today, otherwise I'll end up eating the whole thing.

Do you drain the can of pineapple? The recipe mentions subbing juice from the can of pineapple for the water, but it never mentions draining the pineapple?

If using canned pineapple, then yes, drain it. If you want more of a pineapple taste in the cake itself, sub some of the drained pineapple juice instead of the water called for. Sorry that wasn't clear.

I've cooked three pineapple upside down cakes this summer.

I use the old school charcoal method. I have only used pineapple slices, not chunked pineapple. Yours with chunked pineapple and pecans looks like a great addition. I'm defintely a fan of using the pineapple juice in the cake mix though Very Happy

The first was a flop, i used 6 coals on the bottom and 18 on the top for 40 minutes.



I had to save this one indoors in the oven. Nearly total failure.

The next try i was camping so no fallback option. i used 10 coals on the bottom and 18 on the top for 60 minutes.



Definitely worked out well. Even the vegitarians on our camp trip enjoyed it.

I'll hunt for try #3.

My favorite part of serving the cake is the presentation -> slamming the oven on a picknick table.

I EDITED THE PHOTO SIZE - I HOPE IT WORKS THIS TIME & DOES NOT CRASH YOUR FORUM, LET ME KNOW.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been out of the country for the last week. It was 350 dome temp.
