So this is the Pineapple Upside Down Cake Lady in these parts of Port Charlotte, FLA. The absolute joy of my life. When I come down here to visit, we do have the best of time. Time is way too short, but I have found out that I just have to jump on a flight and I am here in a short day and now that I am retired, I hope to be able to do this more often.
So today, while she was fixing her signature dessert, I asked if I could watch and learn.
(I honestly have never made this before). She has shared this with many groups and I think some of the men around here have been known to fight each other for a piece of this dessert.
(Recipe to follow)
Here's the ingredients.
Drain your pineapple and reserve the juice to use in the cake as the liquid of the cake.
She uses this butter in alot of things. Seems to work well.
Then she spreads a can of drained crushed pineapple over each one and cuts marachino cherries in half and spreads them around.

The recipe is super simple and doesn't take long at all!
First I spray all my pans that will go in the oven before I start. I use 4 - 9x13 pans per recipe batch.
This is recipe uses two bags of puffs. It can be cut in half. I just figure if I am going to make the mess, make a double batch!!!!
Mix the brown sugar, butter, and Karo Syrup together in a heavy pan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes always stirring... (Sometimes I just make sure the brown sugar is dissolved and don't take a whole 5 minutes).
I am able to find corn puffs at my local grocery store, but down here, WallyWorld is just now carrying this product. Before we actually could not find anyone that carried it here. In Houston, my sister found them at Big Lots.
After bringing to a boil and mixing the baking soda in for the fizz action. Pour over the corn puffs, stir to coat and pour into 9x13 pans. Put into a 250 degree oven and stir every 15 minutes. I have been known to go longer on the time. The corn puffs want to sound dry and crunchy! At home I pour the batches out on wax paper to cool, but here i just poured them back into this yellow bowl, let them cool and then tossed them to break them up into individual pieces.
Be sure what ever you store them in that air can't get to it because they will get soggy if not air tight. ENJOY!!!! GREAT FOR PARTIES!!!!
CARAMEL CORN PUFFS
Printed from COOKS.COM
1 c. butter
2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white Karo syrup
Put in medium saucepan and melt. Bring to a full boil. Turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir until foamy.
Pour over 2 bags of Old Dutch Corn Puffs (I put corn puffs in big roasting pan - easier to mix caramel into puffs). Stir in caramel and bake in 250 degree oven for 1 hour, uncovered. Stir every 15 minutes.
Pour onto waxed paper. Let cool. Break up chunks and store in 2 large ziplock bags.

click on this and enjoy Frank Sinatra singing this hit that was written for him and was the title track of his 1958 album.
Flying over Atlanta before landing. Anyone know what stadium this is? It is right by the skyline, maybe Bobby Dodd Stadium?
Flying over water... the clouds are just unbelievable....
I believe this is Rotonda, Florida. I see this formation each time I fly down here and have never had my camera ready before...... today...... score!!!!!
I am in Florida for a week and my blogging will be sporadic (or not). Ya just never know. So stick it out with me because I may surprise you with something amazing (or not!)
A tiny note: I was raised on the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, etc. and my dad had a beautiful voice. He would sing these songs to my sister and I when we were young. Just a nice memory of my dad who I miss so much! My dad's name was Frank too and we are coming up on the 11th anniversary of his eternal birthday.
