Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Clumps

But some folks, like CraftFail reader Sheree, might argue that maybe cakes weren’t meant to baked upside-down with juicy tropical fruit. Also, Sheree admits that substituting applesauce for oil might have been her upside-downfall.

    … What on Earth…. I wouldn’t think subbing applesauce for oil would be the fail. Obviously the pan was too large for the cake, and there’s the question of the green stuff? Why is it green? What did you add that was green?

    I’m betting that she used an iron or older steel baking pan – they can react to acidic fruits like pineapple and turn them green.
