Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake: Tropical Sweetness In Every Bite


Welcome to the tropical paradise of Hawaii! Get ready to indulge in the sweet and tangy flavors of our Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.


First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, melt 1/4 cup of butter in a 9-inch round cake pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of brown sugar evenly over the melted butter.


Next, arrange pineapple slices on top of the brown sugar. You can use canned or fresh pineapple, whichever you prefer. Make sure to leave some space in between the slices.


In a separate bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. In another bowl, cream 1/2 cup of butter and 3/4 cup of sugar until light and fluffy.


Add 2 eggs, one at a time, to the butter and sugar mixture. Then, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/2 cup of pineapple juice. Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix until well combined.


Pour the batter over the pineapple slices in the cake pan. Smooth out the top with a spatula and 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.


For an extra tropical touch, you can add maraschino cherries in the center of each pineapple slice. This will add a pop of color and a burst of sweetness to every bite.


Serve your Hawaiian Pineapple Upside-Down Cake warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The combination of warm cake, juicy pineapple, and cold ice cream is simply irresistible.
