Pineapple upside down Cake

Making this kind of cake was in my mind for a long time. After a long gap, I set to bake a cake since I had all the ingredients and suddenly when I spotted a tray of freshly cut pineapple in my refrigerator, I decided it was going to be a Pineapple upside down cake. It came out great and tasted delicious too. I used the usual cake recipe I use for most of my cakes and it really works. The cake was just perfect and spongy and now I am more confident of the basic recipe.
