Yummy Pineapple upside down cake


It has been a long time since I wanted to bake pineapple upside down cake. Not only it tastes good, it is a feast to the eyes too.  I finally decide to surprise my better half with this and hunted for a good recipe. I found one of the best in Joyofbaking.com and am happy of the outcome. Thanks Stephanie for the recipe. I made a few changes on the availability of ingredients and the result was wonderful. 


Pre heat the oven to 350 deg.

For the cake:
Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 2 large
Milk - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

For the topping
Pineapple- quartered pieces
Butter - 4 tbsp
Brown sugar - 3/4 cup

For the topping, add the brown sugar and butter in a pan in low heat until the butter has melted.  Keeping in heat for a few more minutes. makes the sugar to caramelize. Once the caramelized stage is reached, pour the contents to a greased baking pan and evenly arrange the quartered pineapple slices on top of the caramelized mix.


Sift the flour with baking powder and salt.  Separate the yolk and the whites of the egg.  Whisk the egg white well until it is stiff. 

Mix the sugar and butter until it is light and fluffy (5-6 min) and then add the vanilla extract.  To this mixture, add the egg yolks beating well. Now, add the flour and the milk alternatively ending with milk. Gently, fold in the egg white to this flour mixture. Pour this mix into the baking dish already with pineapple and caramel topping.

Bake  for about 40 to 50 minutes. Allow it to cool for about 45 min before turning it upside down.


Yummy gooey pineapple upside down cake is ready to devour.
