Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake: Sweet And Tropical Classic


Welcome to the tropical paradise of Hawaii! Today, we're going to take a journey through the flavors of the island with a classic Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.


First, let's gather our ingredients. You'll need flour, sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, vanilla extract, and of course, juicy pineapple slices.


Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch round cake pan. Then, melt 1/4 cup of butter in the pan and sprinkle 1/2 cup of brown sugar evenly on top.


Now, arrange your pineapple slices on top of the sugar and butter mixture. You can also add maraschino cherries for a pop of color and extra sweetness.


In a separate bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Then, add in 1/2 cup of melted butter, 2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.


Pour the batter over the pineapple slices and spread it evenly. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Once the cake is done, let it cool for 10 minutes before flipping it onto a serving plate. The pineapple slices should now be on top, creating a beautiful and delicious presentation.


Serve your Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate tropical treat. The combination of sweet pineapple and buttery cake will transport you to the shores of Hawaii.


This cake is perfect for any occasion, whether it's a summer barbecue, a birthday party, or just a sweet indulgence for yourself. It's a crowd-pleaser that will have everyone asking for the recipe.
