Eggless Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Photobucket

Birthday's are always special. Comes just once a year but adds 1 to your age making you a little older!! LOL

Round numbers are all the more special. Yup! My sweet mother-in-law turned 50 yesterday :) She is 50 years young I say. Charming and sweet, calm and beautiful and so on. She is one of the ladies I completely admire :) 

Happy birthday Athamma :) 

I got energy from no where last evening and I quickly whipped up this pretty cake for her as a surprise when she was back home :) She enjoyed it a lot and liked it more since it was from her daugher-in-law this year :)

Method:

To make the caramel - 

Take the butter and sugar in a pan and heat until the butter and sugar melts. Now add the water and keep stirring under medium flame until the sugar caramelizes to light brown color. Remove from flame and immediately pour it into a round baking pan. 

Drain the pineapples from the syrup in the tin. Now arrange them on top of the caramel poured in the baking pan. Arrange the cherries as per your taste too and keep the pan aside. 

For the cake -

Sieve maida, cooking soda and baking powder together. 

Take a mixing bowl and beat butter and milk maid until smooth. Add the pineapple essence and food color and beat until well mixed. Fold in the maida, baking powder mixture alternating with milk and water until well incorporated. 

Pour the batter over the arranged pineapples slowly and smoothen the top with spatula. 

Preheat oven to 180°C and bake the cake for 30-40 mins. 

Check if cooked by inserting a tooth pic in the center. The cake done if the toothpick comes out clean.

Invert the cake immediately on the wire rack and allow it to cool. 

Enjoy the beautiful and delicious pineapple cake :)
