Happy National Backward Day!

Are you one of those people who like doing things backward?

Woman bending over backwards.

Do you like to have your dessert first?

Do you wear your shirt inside out?

Do you sleep during the day and stay up all night?

If backwards is a way of life for you….

Would like to say

Happy National Backward Day!

And for those of you who have never done anything backwards,

live a little today

do something backward!

Have a glass of champagne in the morning

Champagne breakfast

Wear something sexy under your clothing to work

Make out with your partner in the light of day

Have cake for breakfast and eggs for dinner

Breakfast on a plate of a funny face

And if you cannot think of anything backward to do today,

you can always just bake an Upside Down Cake

this of course is the cake of the day!

Upside Down Cake Recipe

Pineapple Upside Down Cake


¼ Cup of butter/margarine

2/3 cup of packed brown sugar

9 slices of pineapple in juice (drained)

9 maraschino cherries without stem

1 1/3 all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup shortening

½ teaspoon salt

¾ cup milk

1 egg

Heat oven to 350°F. In 9-inch square pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over melted butter. Arrange pineapple slices over brown sugar. Place cherry in center of each pineapple slice.

In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.

Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over cake a few minutes so brown sugar mixture can drizzle over cake; remove pan. Serve warm. Store cake loosely covered. Compliments of Betty Crocker

  2. Great post, Cynthia!

    If it ends up being backward or upside dowb by accident does it still count? Our school used to have a backwards day. Kids wore their clothes backward and walked backward. The more adventurous ones even turned in mirror images of their homework. What fun!
