{Photo Friday} Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pin It
I love to spend hours looking at food photos from either food magazines or food blogs. Upon looking at those mouthwatering photos it could actually motive oneself to try working on the recipe(s) especially those that requires simple ingredients and comes with step-by-step photos. Today I am sharing a Photo Post on a Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe that I try from Nami's blog @ Just One Cookbook. If you have follow this blog you would remember she is also the one who inspired and taught me how to make the Japanese Steamed Cake (recipes on Mushipan).

For this 1st Photo Friday entry, I would like to share with you a delicious cake recipe that I bake from Nami's blog.


PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE


Just a few days ago I saw a lot of beautiful fresh pineapples available at the wet market and on the same day so coincident Nami also shared a post on her Pineapple Upside Down Cake which she made for her husband. So without hesitate I know I must go and get hold of the pineapple to try her recipe.

Although I am don't like to eat pineapple as a fruit on it's own(because I am afraid of sour and it's tongue bite feeling) but I love it when it is used to make pineapple jam, pineapple tarts, achar(fruit salad) and etc. Thinking about it I still miss Sherie's(maameemoomoo) pineapple salad that she share with me during my last visit to her place.


Recipe adapted from Nami's @ Just One Cookbook HERE.

(Make: 8" Round Tin | Preparation: 15 minutes | Cooking: 50 - 60 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Pineapple, (skin removed, halve and core)
150g Caster Sugar
1/2 Cup Water
86g Unsalted Butter, soften

Batter for Cake:
114g Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
140g Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs
3 Egg Yolks
200g Caster Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Although there is a small hiccups while preparing the caramel pineapple but overall the cake was perfect with it's soft, sponge cake like texture that tops with delicious golden pineapple slices. This is just too good for an afternoon tea-snack and I have two slices with my favourite fruit tea. If you are keen in trying out this recipe, do head over to Nami's blog and check out her step-by-step recipe on making this mouthwatering cake HERE.

Till then have a great weekend everyone! Stay tune for next Photo Friday recipe again.
