Ingredients to make Grandmother's Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

  • For topping:
  • 1/4 cup butter (salted)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 can (840 grams) pineapple slices, drained
  • 1 small can of maraschino cherries
  • For Cake batter:

  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 5 tbsp pineapple juice

How to make Grandmother's Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

  1. Topping:
  2. Position a rack in the center of the oven, and preheat to 180 degrees C.
  3. Melt butter and transfer to a 9-inch square cake pan to evenly coat bottom; sprinkle brown sugar evenly over the butter and top with an even layer of pineapple rings.
  4. Place a cherry in the middle of each slice, and arrange remaining cherries around slices, as per preference. Press gently into brown sugar. Keep aside.
  5. Cake:
  6. In a medium bowl, combine sifted flour, baking powder and stir.
  7. Using a hand mixer, in a metal or glass bowl, beat egg whites at high speed until fluffy. Set aside.
  8. In a separate bowl beat egg yolks with sugar at medium speed until creamy.
  9. Add pineapple juice, and vanilla extract, and beat well.
  10. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, and beat until well combined.
  11. Next gently fold in the egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  12. Pour batter evenly in prepared cake pan, smooth the top with a spatula and transfer to oven.
  13. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  14. Place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.
  15. Now run a blunt knife around the edges of pan to loosen the cake.
  16. Place cake plate on top of pan and reverse.
  17. Leave pan over the cake for 2 minutes so brown sugar topping can drizzle over the cake; remove pan.
  18. Serve warm or at room temperature. Fall in love!

My Tip:

1. Sifting the flour creates a lighter cake. 2. Cover the cake and store for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. 3. I have used 200 ml measuring cup.
