Serious Cake at Corner Bakery

Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that can make people happy. Like when I walked into Corner Bakery and spotted a shimmering, whole pineapple upside down cake on display.

Me: How much is that?

Baker: The whole thing?

Me: The whole thing.

As she tied it up for me, I was informed that it had just come out of the oven and it was still warm. I think I felt a tear form in my eye.


So rich, but not heavy, and so hard to stop eating that I had to pack it away and put it in the freezer. This is a simple cake, but a classic and utterly good. My friend who hates pineapple upside down cake is now a changed man and devoured it. He met his match.

Corner Bakery has other tasty baked goods, I’ve been told that their cobblers are to die for. You know what I’m trying next 😉 .
