Recipe: Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cake

Published by Emilee at 9:21 AM under

Looking for a fabulous dessert? Stephen Proctor, the Fabulous Fox Theatre's Chef, has paired two classic favorites - pineapple upside-down cake and carrot cake - for a match made in heaven. Enjoy!

Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cake

Yield: three 9” cakes

For the Cake:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted, room temperature
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups raw carrot, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 4 ounces chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1-1/3 cups butter, unsalted, melted

For the Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, unsalted, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ lb powdered sugar
  • ½ cup honey, clover or prairie flower
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil
  • Combine all ingredients in mixer, whip until light, fluffy and homogenous

Preheat oven to 300

Cream together the granulated sugar, vegetable oil and ½ cups softened butter. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating well after each addition.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Fold into wet ingredients.

Fold the carrots and walnuts into the batter.

In the bottom of three greased 9” cake pans, place ½ cup brown sugar, and 1/3 cup melted butter, making sure to cover the bottom of the pan evenly. Divide the diced pineapple evenly among the three pans. Carefully divide the batter into the pans on top of the brown sugar/butter/pineapple. Do not mix!! After batter has been divided, spread it evenly on top.

Place in 300° oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick come out just clean in center.

Let cool slightly and then invert onto plate.

Serve as is, with powdered sugar or cream cheese icing.

We serve it with cream cheese icing, with the addition of honey and walnut oil.

Baking variations- use large muffin tins or mini loaf pans instead of cake pans. The cooking time decreases with the size of the pan used.

You can also cut the pineapple into rings, or use canned pineapple. Make sure to drain the pineapple very well before use.

Here Comes the Sun Theater!

Published by Rachel at 12:23 PM under

Our fabulous neighbor has undergone an extensive restoration and opened its doors for the first time in nearly 40 years. The century-old Sun Theater was originally built in 1913 as a playhouse showcasing works in German, but will now feature performances by Grand Center Arts Academy students. In the future, the theater may also become available to local performing groups.

The process of restoring the Sun Theater was much like the restoration of The Fabulous Fox. The Sun Theater’s restoration process required significant cleaning, repair work, and extensive care and attention when preserving the venue’s historical details. The theater, which originally opened a century ago, was closed in 1972. It fell into disrepair. Water collected inside, trees sprouted on the roof, and some say it looked like a war zone on the inside. Thankfully The Lawrence Group, an architecture firm, bought the theater in 2010 and gave it an $11 million dollar makeover. New classrooms were also added during the restoration so that the theater can be used as a learning space as well as a performance space. For photos of the theater’s impressive restoration, head to NextSTL.

We are so thrilled that this wonderful venue has been restored to its former glory and we cannot wait to enjoy the wonderful performances from the students at Grand Center Arts Academy!
