Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Thanks everyone for continuing to view my blog and I will continue to have new exciting bakes! (though much slower now)

I recently tried my hand on pineapple upside down cake. It was surprisingly easy and I'm sure everyone can do it in no time.

Here's how to do it.

20g unsalted butter, melted
Some soft brown sugar
6 slices of pineapples (canned)

90g unsalted butter, softened
125g caster sugar

2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence/extract

125g self raising flour, sifted

1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C
2. Pour melted butter into a 20cm pan (brush both the base and sides of pan with butter) and sprinkle with brown sugar evenly
3. Cut pineapples into half and place them nicely on the base of the tin
4. Beat the extra butter and sugar with electric beaters till light and creamy then add eggs gradually, beating well after each addition
5. Add the vanilla extract and beat until well combined
6. Fold in the flour alternatively with 70g of pineapple juice
7. Spoon the mixture evenly over the pineapple and bake for 40 min
8. Leave cake in tin for 10 min before turning out to a wire rack to cool

Other priorities

I have been rather inactive in my food blog, to the disappointment of my followers.

Apologies as I have many other priorities and commitments now. However I will still endeavour to keep my blog going. Slow but surely more stuff coming up..
