Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I am a chocolate person all the way, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a thing for fruits too 😀

Okay, I like only certain fruits and I like them less than chocolate, peanut butter and caramel!

But today I am in a sunshine yellow mood. Yellow for me is a very happy color. (P.S. I got my room walls painted a bright yellow once and my brother whom I then shared  my  room with was pissed off with me until the next whitewash 😛 )

“Bright yellow with some red” mood, Do you get the hint 😉 YES, we are baking a Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake today.

  3. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.
  4. Add one whole pineapple slice in the center of the pan.
  5. Halve the remaining slices and arrange them around the central whole pineapple slice. (I had huge pineapple rings so I had to halve the half slice. So basically I used ¼ part of the ring)
  6. Also, place few half slices around the sides of the cake pan with the curved side towards yourself.
  7. Now place cherries in the center of each pineapple slice.
  8. Let’s get going with the vanilla cake batter now.
  9. Mix curd and sugar till sugar dissolves. Add the baking soda and baking powder. Leave it for 5 minutes till bubbles appear.
  10. Now add vanilla essence and oil to it.
  11. Add the all purpose flour and just combine to get a creamy batter
  12. Now pour this batter slowly over your prepared pan. Careful not to  disturb your arrangement. Fill pan ¾ full.
  13. Bake until center is set.
  14. Allow the cake to cool for atleast 1 hour before inverting.
