Day 82 – Pineapple Upside Down Cake

So I was meant to make mince pies for work. For christmas. I forgot. Oops. So I’ve made this instead. I found a recipe on BBC Good Food which is quickly becoming a favourite.

It’s really simple to make but to bake I think it’s harder than I expected.

Ingredients

Topping ~
* Pineapple rings
* Glace cherries
* Butter
* Light Brown Soft Sugar

Cake ~
* 100g Self Raising Flour
* 100g Butter
* 100g Caster Sugar
* 1tsp Vanilla Extract
* 2 Tbsp Pineapple Juice
* Baking powder.

What To Do

Mix the butter and light brown sugar in to a paste.

Smear around the base and 1/2 in of the sides on an 8″ dish.

Place the pineapple rings in to the paste and a glance cherry in each ring centre.

Mix all the cake ingredients together in a bowl and pour over the pineapple. Bake at 180° for 35 mins until the butter paste has caramelised.

Mm it was yummy. The butter sugar paste didn’t caremelise but the cake was verging on over done. I did cook it in a tin and will try again in a shallower glass dish. Time to bake more pastries.
