Pineapple Upside Down Cake


This classic cake has always been a favorite of mine! I had been craving something sweet and this buttery rich cake with caramelized pineapple was just what I wanted.  Luckily I had a tin of pineapple in my pantry along with all the other ingredients, so I could rustle up this super moist and flavorful dessert.  I invited a couple of friends over for coffee and cake ….the cake is a total show stopper besides being lip smacking good!!

What you need:

1 can pineapple rings
1 oz glace cherries
3-4 tbsp melted golden syrup
6 oz self raising flour or 6 0z regular flour with 1 tsp baking powder
4 oz butter
4 oz caster sugar
2 eggs
2 – 3 tbsp milk

How to make:

  1.  Grease the base of a 7 inch round cake tin well and line it with greased paper.
  2. Arrange pineapple slices and cherries decoratively in it and cover them with golden syrup. 
  3. For the cake: In a bowl, add the butter and castor sugar and mix well.  Whisk in the eggs and stir well.  Now add the flour slowly 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing well.
  4. Now spread the cake batter evenly and carefully over the pineapple slices. 
  5. Bake in a moderate oven at 180 degrees centigrade for 45 minutes till cake is done.
  6. Invert cake on top of a cake stand or a large serving plate. Slice and serve warm, room temperature, or even cold. Try serving with vanilla ice cream – it’s a delicious combination.
