Pineapple Upside down cake

I have forever been a fan of the gorgeous glassy appearence of the upside down cakes. ❤

It is an art to decide the artwork that should be placed at the bottom of the cake pan, before we pour the fluffy batter on top. A lot of people like the blonde look on the cake, but I love the caramel color brown sugar gives to the base. I based me recipe on the classic cake recipe I found on Sally’s blog.

You shall need:

For the topping-

8-10 pieces… Pineapple slices (I used delmonte slices)

6-8… cherries or 3-4 tbsp… tutti frutti

3 tbsp…. Brown sugar

3 tbsp… melted butter

For the cake:

1/2 cup… butter

1/2 cup… white Castor sugar

1/4 cup… Light brown sugar

1/2 cup… Pineapple syrup from the canned pineapples

1 ans 1/3 cup… All purpose flour

1 tsp… Baking powder

1… whole eggs

1… egg yolk

3/4 cup… Butter milk (In 3/4 cup of milk, add 1 tsp vinegar and let  it send for 10 min)

1 tsp… vanilla essence

Method:

  • Pre heat oven to 180C and line a cake tin with butterpaper on bottom as well as sides.
  • To the melted butter, add the sugar and layer it evenly at the bottom of the lined cake pan.
  • Now arrange the pineapple slices and cherries/tutti frutti in a pattern that you like.

  • Cream the butter and sugars in a bowl.
  • Sift together, flour and baking powder.
  • Add the egg to the creamed butter and sugar mix and mix well.
  • Now add the yolk and mix well.
  • Put about half the flour mix and mix well.
  • Add the pineapple syrup and half the butter milk and mix.
  • Add the remaining flour, syrup and butter milk and mix until incorporated.
  • Lightly spoon the batter on the pineapple base.
  • Level the cake from the top.
