BETH’S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE RECIPE
1 cup (180 g) brown sugar
4 tbsp (60 ml) melted butter
7 pineapple rings, canned variety
1 cup (200 g) of sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
1 cup (120 g) of flour
1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
¼ tsp (1.25 ml) salt
Coconut Ice Cream
Beth’s Caramel Sauce (see below)
2 tbsp (30 ml) Unsweetened Coconut flakes
For the Caramel Topping:
1 cup (200 g) sugar
½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream (AKA double pouring cream)
1 tbsp (15 g) unsalted butter
1/8 tsp (.75 ml) sea salt
Spray a 10” (25 cm) cake pan with baking spray. Then pour the melted butter into pan, sprinkle with the brown sugar until evenly distributed. Place pineapple rings on top filling the bottom of the pan in an even layer. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the egg and the sugar on high for 5-7 minuets until doubled in volume and pale yellow. Add vanilla.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add slowly to the egg mixture until just combined.
Pour batter on top of pineapples and bake at 350F (175C) for 30 mins until golden brown and set.
Allow to cool for 15 mins and then reverse the cake onto a cake stand.
TO PREPARE THE CARAMEL TOPPING:
Heat white sugar in a deep saucepan. As it heats the sugar will melt and begin to caramelize. Keep swirling it in the pan, lowering flame if needed so that it does not burn. Once it reaches a caramel color, add the heavy cream allow it to bubble and then it will settle down. Add butter and salt. Use immediately. Or transfer to a heat safe container and refrigerate until ready to re-heat and serve.
Cut cake into slices and serve with coconut ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with unsweetened coconut flakes.
