How do I get this flippin upside down cake to flip out of the pan?

I made a pineapple upside down cake and it wouldn't come out of the pan. To make this one I melted the butter and just mixed the brown sugar into the melted butter. Is that a no-no?

Float the pan in very warm water, softening the glaze, then turn upside down and rap it firmly on the serving plate (without breaking the plate!)

If it makes you feel any better, on yesterday's show, Paula Deen has problems getting her upside down Pineapple cake out of her pan also.

i always put parchment paper in the bottom of my cake pans for ease for flipping,
i have never done a pinapple upside down cakecake, as others in the house don't like pinneapple, would you get the same results in the cake doing that?

If you let it cool, the caramel in the bottom sets up and you can't get it out. You have to turn it out while it's still pretty warm.

Put the pan over a stove burner for a few minutes to melt the caramel. THen it should flip right out.

Using the stove top burner, if you do it too long or get distracted, you could burn the sugar and ruin your topping. That's why hot water is much safer. Short cuts aren't always the way to go.

That's what I was thinking.

I use Pyrex baking pans, so that could be disastrous.

That's not a "no no".

For this cake, you have to get the cake bottom hot enough to soften the sugar mixture. Then invert it right away onto a cake platter and leave it all together for a few minutes so any sauce can run off from the pan onto the cake. Then you should be able to lift off the cake pan.

In the future, transfer the cake to the serving plate as soon as it comes out of the oven.

You shouldn't need parchment but it wouldn't hurt.
