Listen and Cook: Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Listen & Cook with an American Girl®: Claudie’s Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Claudie Wells is growing up at the height of the Harlem Renaissance: it’s 1922, and she’s surrounded by writers and poets, painters and sculptors, actors and dancers, singers and musicians. Claudie longs to be an artist like so many of the people around her, but she’s starting to believe that everyone has a talent…except for her.

Claudie spends a lot of time in Angelo’s Bakery, where her father works baking elaborately decorated cakes. One of her very favorites is the pineapple upside-down cake: a soft buttery treat with a golden caramelized pineapple topping that’s the perfect combination of sweet and fruity.

Make this pineapple upside-down cake  that seems straight from Angelo’s Bakery while you listen to Claudie find the confidence to discover her true talent and let her imagination soar in Meet Claudie.
