First Place Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Photo is not my actual cake, since I'm at work, I will post "real" pictures tonight!

I made this recipe last night and it turned out so pretty!  I can hardly wait to taste it. I made it for a co-worker for her grandfathers birthday.  She said she would bring me a piece if there is any left over!
