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!


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?


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.


great camera that picks up the vibe of your recipes! Looks suitably retro indeed!


This cake looks retro and very fab - I would be delighted to be served this.


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


i love the big orange plate! now i want a big orange plate, and a piece of your cake on it :)


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!


Nothing wrong with a retro cake! It looks wonderful!


Very interesting tip about the butterscotch chips!


I love retro..Butterscotch chips..I don't know what that is? Is it candy? It is an interesting twist and I would love to taste it.


OMG! I am so mad I missed this...
It looks amazing and gooey and wonderful.
