Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe
I remember making this when I was at school in Cookery Class! I had a tin of pineapples in the house and thought about some kind of dessert for the kids and this cake came into my mind!
I looked for an easy recipe online that I could follow and found one here: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5562/pineapple-upsidedown-cake I didn't follow the exact same recipe but near enough! Below is my method:
50g Brown Sugar
Tin of Pineapple Rings ( 5 where in my tin!) keep the syrup for Cake.
Glace Cherries (optional)
For the Cake:
100g Caster Sugar
100g Self Raising Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla flavouring
2 Tablespoons of Pineapple Syrup
Preheat Oven to 180C
To make the topping you need to beat together the margarine and sugar until creamy
Pour this mixture into a cake tin
Place Pineapples onto the mixture
If using Cherries place them inside the Pineapple Rings
Place all the cake ingredients into a bowl including 2 tablespoons of Pineapple syrup.
Beat the mixture - using electric whisk is easier.
Spoon the mixture into the cake tin on top of the pineapples - level out.
Cook for 35 mins
Remove and allow to cool down for 5 minutes.
Then turn out onto a plate and serve (with ice cream is nice!)
