Upside-Down Cake

Preparation & Cooking Time: 25-30 minutes



  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 0.5 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 440g can pineapple rings or pieces
  • GlacÚ cherries


Combine the butter and the brown sugar for decoration and spread it over the base of 1 large or 2 small drip trays. Place the pineapple and cherries in a decorative manner on top. Make the cake by combining all the cake ingredients in a food processor and mix them until they are creamy. Pour this mixture over the pineapple decoration and spread it evenly. Place the cake on the barbecue and cook, with the lid on, for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn it out upside down and serve hot or cold with cream or icecream.
