Classic Cake-Pineapple Upside Down

I definitely gonna make this cake again.
Its easy and yummy..perfect for tea time.
This is my first attempt to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
A year ago,one of my neighbor asked me to make this cake, as she knows I love baking.
But, as I am not so pineapple lover, her request has to postpone until today:)
and her request inspired me to made her another cake which is the main ingredients is pineapple juice, and dropped some marascino cherries. That was a vegetarian cake,which I sent to her and some good friends to celebrate Divali Day last year.

My daughter with her favorite bee frock, I could see her tummy so big if she is full, and while typing this post, she´s enjoying my pineapple cake :)

Its so perfect to have this with a cup of tea..

ANd here is the recipe

Source: BBC good food.
I used 18cm round cake tin


50 gr softened butter
50 gr light brown sugar
7 pineapples rings in syrup, drained syrup and cherry


100GR Softened butter - I used 50gr, my mistake I thought 50 gr:) but the cake still fantastic
100 gr golden caster sugar
100 gr self raising flour - I used all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanila extract
2 eggs


Heat oven 180C
For topping:
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Spread over the base & a quarter of the way up the sides of a 20-21cm round cake tin.
Arrange pineapple rings on top, then place cherry in the centre of the ring.

Place cake ingredients in a bowl along with 2 tbsp pineapple syrup
Using mixer, beat to a soft consistency. Spoon into a tin on top of pineapple & smooth it out so its level.

Bake 35 minutes. Leave to cool for 5 minutes to turn out into plate.
Serve warm with ice cream

I did not use the pineapple in a can. So, what I did was, I used the normal pineapple, and core the middle side of pineapple to make a space for cherries.
And while making the cake, I did not put any additional sugar to replace the pineapple syrup.

I keep in a fridge,and before serve just keep it outside for awhile to make it softer...
