Pineapple upside down cake

I bought a can of pineapple rings ages ago, yet never got round to making it. So today I thought I will make it for guests and hope for the best!

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 6+
  • Prep time: 5-10 mins
  • Baking time: 30-35 mins
What you will need:

1 + 1/2 cups self raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1 tbsp brown sugar
4 pineapple rings (from a can)
Optional: Cherries

How to make:

1) Mix the flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, butter and pineapple juice in a large bowl using a wooden spoon, until the mixture is nice and smooth (if your butter is not at room temperature, you are going to suffer to get rid of the lumps)

2) In a 23cm round cake tin (the size I used, you can use a triangle tin if you wish!), line the base with baking paper, add the brown sugar and even it out. Place the pineapple rings over the brown sugar in a neat form. If you are using cherries, place them to decorate

3) Pour the batter over the pineapples and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-35 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean

Make sure you keep the cake in for the full time, as you may think it is done, yet some places may need longer. Enjoy!
