Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day with your friends and family! And that you're eating delicious food! Today is the last day of the twelve days of baking, and it is featuring the festive upside down pineapple cake!
You will need:
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 can of sliced pineapple
8 maraschino cherries
1/4 cup of brown sugar
To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream the eggs with the sugar. Add in the flour, baking powder, milk, and vanilla extract.
Grease your springform pan, and sprinkle the brown sugar in one layer along the bottom. You need to coat it very well. Add your pineapple slices (7 around, and 1 in the centre). Pop the cherries in the centre of each piece of pineapple.
Pour the batter over the top of the pineapple and cherries, and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until dry in the centre. Let it cool before you remove it from the pan.
Very carefully, flip it upside down (hence the upside down pineapple cake). The top will be nice and caramelized, while the cake is fluffy and delicious. Serve and enjoy!
I'm serving this cake for my Christmas meal, and I'm sure everyone will be impressed! I hope you have enjoyed the Twelve Days of Baking on my blog. Let me know what you think in the comments. Enjoy your Christmas and you'll be hearing from me soon!
