"I have a 6-inch cast iron skillet that is perfect for making this cake. I have made it several times and it is perfect for a couples dinner or for the 2 of us with leftovers the next day."

"It was a tight squeeze getting the four pineapple slices in the cake pan, and one ended up more oval than round, but this was still tasty. My husband and I both agree that it's not as rich as my "full-size" upside down cake, but we thought it made a nice treat for just two people."
