Reviewed Rum Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
"This recipe was probably the best pineapple upside down cake I've made yet! Using what I had on hand, I substituted dark rum for the spiced rum and it worked out quite well. Since I mostly "eyeball" measurements when I cook or bake, I just made sure the fruit had enough rum to soak them in, but be careful when adding the excess from the cherries to the pan, you don't want too much or it will be runny. I did cut back a bit on the butter, and since I was out of vanilla I scraped out the inside of 1 vanilla bean to add to the batter...the cake came out moist and spongy with and incredible buttery vanilla flavor. This is definitely a recipe you can improvise for what you have on hand and it still comes out good! As for the cast iron skillet, I don't know how I'd live without my cast iron! Nothing cooks like it and it can go from stove top to oven. I have skillets, dutch oven and a stove top griddle/ grill and plan to keep on adding to my collection."
"I used the sauce recipe from this and it was absolutely perfect! Definitely has a kick to it. As for the pork, I buy the long pork loins when thy are on sale and cut them into smaller roast size, so that is what I had on hand to use. I also made a rub instead with smoked paprika, (adds a nice smokey hint to the meat) dry mustard, salt and brown sugar, rubbed down the roast and threw it in the fridge over night. The next day I baked it in the cast iron dutch oven and then added the sauce once it was pulled apart. Served up with home made Parker house rolls...it doesn't get much better! I plan on making a double batch of this sauce and canning it in small jars so I have it on hand for days when time is short."

"This is the first time I've tried this recipe, and it's definitely a keeper. I made them into burger buns for pulled pork BBQ. Not needing such a large quantity, I decided to half the recipe, and still used the full pack of yeast. I also dissolved the sugar in the water prior to adding the yeast instead of dissolving it in the milk as called for. To shape the rolls, I used a large glass to cut them out of the dough and they came out perfectly shaped, and not dense at all after baking. I also used regular flour, and did not have to use any more than what was needed. I think I can kiss store bought buns good bye and plan on making this instead!"
