There was nothing kitschy or dated about this cake, the flavors were complex and totally cohesive, delicious and surprising. For what ever reason pineapple upside-down cake has fallen out of fashion, I think that it's about time to bring it back.

Flip it onto a plate and remove the parchment to reveal the beautifully fruit-studded surface. The blackberries I used gave this cake an almost stained glass appearance, with the juices staining the cake purple-black to a light lavender color, it was gorgeous. Oh, and it tasted pretty incredible, too. Just sweet enough to be a perfect candidate for some à la mode action.
