a lovely phone picture this morning.
I got up, and with my eyes still half closed I started doing this cake. Like a little robot, each step automatically...
butter. into the oven.
put over melted butter. back in oven.
pour over pineapple.
Pineapple upside down cake
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. cake flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp rhum extract
1 can pineapple slices in syrup
Place butter in 8" pan, melt in the oven while preheating to 375°F.
Sprinkle brown sugar over melted butter. Arrange whole pineapple slices over the brown sugar in pan.
In a bowl, combine softened butter, milk, egg, rhum extract and 2 tablespoons of the pineapple syrup with cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Yup, everything. It will be nice and smooth. Easy.
Pour batter into the pan being careful not to disturb the pineapples.
Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake is golden and has pulled away from the edges slightly.
Remove from oven and allow to stand for a few minutes to set and then turn it upside down onto a serving dish. Serve while still warm.
