Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake in Foil Packet

Are you ready for dessert?
 I think it’s for time for some dessert…how about a delicous Pineapple Upside Down Cake?
All of this week’s recipes  have been easy-to-make in tin foil packets…very family friendly!
Monday was about making a delicious hot dip for a snack or appetizer.
A Lumberjack Breakfast was Tuesday’s recipe.
Wednesday’s tin foil packet was a Potato Boat Dinner.
And today…behold the Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
 For this recipe, you will need:
Pineapple chunks, fresh or canned
Poundcake, cubed {you can also use plain cake donuts, or donut holes}
Brown sugar
Whipped Cream or ice cream, if desired
Cinnamon or nutmeg, if desired
Tin foil
Cooking Spray
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Spray a double layer of tin foil with cooking spray.
Add a handful of pineapple chunks.
 Add pound cake cubes on top of the pineapple.
{Pound cake can usually be found in the bakery section of the grocery store, or there is a great Sara Lee frozen pound cake found in the frozen foods section.}
 To the top of the pineapple and cake, add a good dollop of butter and brown sugar.
Fold up the packet and place on a hot BBQ for about 15 minutes…until the butter has melted with the brown sugar and formed a sauce over the pineapple in the bottom of the packet.
 Open up the packet for the last few minutes to brown up the cake a little.
You will not believe how delicious this smells when you open up the packet.
 And if you like, you could add a little whipped cream or ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to finish it off.
For very little work, this dessert is so delicious and easy enough for the kids to make!
I think this is my favourite camping dessert ever!

    Yum! loved all your little tinfoil recipes :) We have a little vintage trillium trailer that we use in the summer, not much space so we have to be super organized! These will be perfect! And no dishes…that is my favourite part!
