Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Ingredients:  Topping

  • 1 tin of sliced pineapple
  • 6 cherries
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter

Ingredients for Cake:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of cake flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of sugar


  • Cut the butter into pieces and spread evenly over the bottom of an overproof dish, place in a preheated oven (350 degrees) until the butter melts
  • Remove from oven after the butter has melted, sprinkle the brown sugar evenly
  • Arrange the pineapple slices in the syrup
  • Cut the cherries in half and place them in the middle of each pineapple slice and set aside
  • Sift the flour and mix with the baking powder, salt and sugar
  • Melt the butter and mix in the eggs and vanilla
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring all the time
  • Pour the cake mixture over the pineapple slices
  • Place in a preheated oven (350 degrees) and cook for 45 minutes to 60 minutes (you can test whether the cake is done by inserting a toothpick in the center), if it comes out clean then the cake is done
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for five minutes. Cut around the outside and turn the cake out onto a serving plate (upside down) so that the pineapple is on the top – this is how it gets the name “Pineapple Upside Down Cake
