Pineapple Upside-Down Cake


This batter seemed very dry when I was making it so I put the reserved pineapple juice in until it was the right consistency. I also added a little bit (Sorry, I didn’t measure it) into the butter & brown sugar mixture. It came out great!! So good that someone couldn’t wait until after I took the picture to take a piece. LOL
