Hey guys! I’m really excited to share my latest recipe featuring Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Cornbread Mix – Pineapple Upside Down Cornbread. It’s a sweet, simple treat perfect for the whole family to enjoy.
By the time spring rolls around, I am ready for a Caribbean vacation! Unfortunately, as a busy mom of two, I don’t always have time for an island escape, so I try to mix tropical flavors into my cooking – and that’s how I came up with my Pineapple Upside Down Cornbread!
This recipe delivers scratch-made taste and takes almost no time at all using Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Cornbread Mix. It’s made with the same real simple ingredients you would find in your pantry, and contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, so I feel good about sharing it with my friends and family.
I love this dish because it can be used for every occasion! This light, fresh dessert is perfect for Easter spreads. I also like pairing this cornbread recipe with the Jamaican Curry Chicken recipe found in my book, The Seasoned Life. The sweetness from the pineapple and the delicious flavor of the cornbread work to balance out the heat from the curry. Give it a try if you’re craving a quick culinary tropical getaway!
