I have a question about the recipe "Flour Bakery's Pineapple Upside Down Cake" from Kate on the Lake. should the oven be pre heated?
Yes, I'm almost 100% sure that the oven should be preheated.
I don't know this particular recipe, but I do make Pineapple Upside Down Cake - and for almost every kind of cake (unless there are unusual instructions which I've never seen) - always preheat. And floss. And call your mother.
The oven is ALWAYS preheated
