Pineapple Upside Down Cake


For the top:
  • Pineapple slices (canned) : 5 to 8
  • Cherry : 10
  • Sugar : 5 Tbsp

For the Cake :
  • All purpose flour : 220 gm
  • Baking powder : ½ Tsp
  • Butter : 125 gm
  • Powdered sugar : 220 gm
  • Egg : 4
  • Pineapple essence : ½ Tsp

Heat the sugar in a pan till it turns brown and melt it completely. Then, pour the caramelised sugar into the cake pan and arrange the pineapple slices and cherries on top of it. Keep it aside.

Pre-heat the oven to 180° C.  Sieve together flour and baking powder. Beat the butter and powered sugar until it turns creamy and smooth. Add eggs one by one into it and beat well after each addition. Pour essence and slowly fold the flour into it. Then, pour it over the pineapple layer and bake it for 50 to 60 mins. Remove it from the oven and empty the pan by inverting it and then placing the cake onto a serving plate.
