Pineapple Upside Down Cake


I made this Pineapple Upside Down cake using the same recipe as my earlier post on
'Peach Upside Down cake', merely substituting peaches with canned pineapple rings.  I filled up the gaps with walnuts resulting in a sourish, fruity and nutty taste.














I like this cake, soft and moist and do keep any left-overs in the refrigerator.

Ingredients
For the Topping, cream the following 2 ingredients
  • 2 oz butter/margarine 
  • 3  Tbsp brown sugar  
For the Cake
  • 4 oz butter/margarine
  • 3.1/2 to 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1  tsp vanilla
  • 6  oz plain flour
  • 1.1/2 level baking powder
  • 1/8  tsp salt
  • 2  Tbsp milk
  • 1  tsp orange or lemon zest
  • Canned pineapple rings  - drained of  syrup
  • Walnuts
Method
  1. Sift flour with the baking powder, salt, set aside.
  2. Cream the 2 oz butter and brown sugar till creamy and spread it over the bottom and sides of an 8 inch square tin.
  3. Arrange the drained pineapple rings over the butter-sguar coating.  Fill up the gaps with walnuts.  Set aside.
  4. Cream  butter and sugar till light, creamy and thick.
  5. Add in eggs one @ a time.
  6. Fold in half sifted flour and add in the milk and vanilla.  Mix well and add in the remaining flour.
  7. Mix in the orange zest, scraping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
  8. Spoon batter over the pineapple rings and bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 50mins.
  9. When cake tests done, invert it immediately onto a serving plate.
  10. Leave for a few minutes before removing the cake tin.
  11. Let cool and serve.
