Sliced Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Switch Vanilla Extract For Rum In Your Next Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
If you're out of vanilla extract, swap it for rum in your next pineapple upside-down cake. The molasses-like rum resonates with the caramelized sugar in the cake's glistening top.
Plus, rum carries warm, complex hints of vanilla, toffee, spice, and fruitiness, adding extra layers of flavor to the cake while melding well with the pineapple's tropical flavors.
You can typically do a direct one-for-one swap of vanilla extract for rum when substituting. However, do be mindful of the type of rum.
Spiced rum adds flavors from spices like cinnamon, making it perfect for fall baking, while a darker, aged rum with subtly sweet notes is more suited for everyday desserts.
