Whoa. Seriously, whoa. Butterscotch chips?! Genius!! (By the way, this is one of the first cakes I ever baked as a kid-- it still is delicious to me.)

I love the "retro" pic. It brings back memories too, of the Betty Crocker cookbooks of my past :P But it is a great shot despite the "groovy" colors!

Butterscotch? Now there's a neat update to the classic recipe. I do love the pineapple rings and cherries -- without that, it would not be the real thing!

Julie

That picture really does look like something right out of a 1950s cookbook! Perfect. Also, I admire any woman who eats cake for breakfast.

My goodness, this looks so good! I love this cake.

I think cake for breakfast makes perfect sense. It goes well with coffee, doesn't it?

Susan

Great idea to bake it in a cast iron skillet. Those "retro" photos are the perfect complement to a most charming cake. Ages since I had one!

i've never understood why some people turn their noses at butterscotch chips. granted, they don't really taste like homemade butterscotch, but they're still delicious.

and hey--no need to be ashamed. that's a perfectly acceptable breakfast food!

I made this last Thanksgiving as a surprise for my Dad's birthday. It's his all-time favorite. I used my grandmother's original recipe that is probably 60 years old, but I love the idea of melting butterscotch. Mmmm.... Maybe I'll try that this Thanksgiving! Thanks, Ann (and Jack!)

Sometimes the retro recipes are the best! I love the sound of the butter and butterscotch chips.

Johanna

Ann you had me crave something sweet. I'm intrigued about the cherry-pineapple combo.

Nothing wrong with a bit of retro! Sounds and looks brilliant to me!

I do remember this pineapple upside down cake very well. We even used to make it camping in a frying pan. You get your important food groups all in one sweet treat:D

Entirely retro and still manages to put a big smile on my face just seeing a picture of pineapple upside down cake.

There's nothing wrong with the camera, you just need to ask Santa to bring you a lowel ego light for christmas. http://www.lowelego.com/

Well, the promise of a beautifully retro delicious cake like this would have me bounding up and down those six floors to the walkup for sure!

Tartelette

Nothing wrong with a retro cake! It looks wonderful!
