Pineapple cake from the oven, I’m literally in Heaven!

image

“OMG?!..This pineapple cake is sooo good!” The reaction of my three year old when he was given some to eat. Out of the mouth of babes! So I don’t need to say anything about the taste!

This is my first pineapple upside down cake and I didn’t over caramelise the topping as I wanted to control the amount of sugar, especially as the pineapple is sweet. I opted to bake the cake in a shallow large tart dish and found it worked well. The batter baked around the pineapple rings and cherries and just sumptuously sank the pineapple into the cake. This way the pineapple ring and depth of the cake was the same. Not too cakey or pineappley! Just right!

Fresh cherries add an essential sourness to this dish instead of glacier ones and I prefer fresh ones always. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as my family did! Also taking some over to Angie’s place…The Novice Gardener

Have a beautiful weekend…rest and relax plenty…see you soon! Much love, D x
