Pineapple Upside - Down Cake

INGREDIENTS

  • 450G PINEAPPLE, CORED AND THINLY SLICED LENGTHWAYS 
  • 1 CUP (375ML) WATER
  • ½ CUP TWO BUSY BEES HONEY HONEY (I LIKE TO USE A COMBINATION OF PURE HONEY AND HONEY INFUSED WITH PINEAPPLE)
  • ½ CUP CASTER (SUPERFINE) SUGAR
  • 190G UNSALTED BUTTER, CHOPPED AND SOFTENED
  • 3 EGGS
  • 2 CUPS (300G) PLAIN (ALL-PURPOSE) FLOUR, SIFTED
  • 1½ TEASPOONS BAKING POWDER, SIFTED
  • ½ TEASPOON BICARBONATE OF SODA, SIFTED
  • ½ CUP (60G) ALMOND MEAL (GROUND ALMONDS)
  • 1 CUP (250ML) BUTTERMILK

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the pineapple, water, honey and ½ cup (110g) sugar in a wide saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes. Remove the pineapple and set aside.
  2. Line the sides of a lightly greased 22cm-round cake tin with non-stick baking paper. Layer the pineapple over the base and pour over half the syrup.
  3. Place the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and beat for 8–10 minutes until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour, baking powder, bicarb, almond meal and buttermilk. Beat on low speed until just combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture over the pineapple and smooth the top. Bake for 1 hour. Cover loosely with aluminium foil. Bake for a further 15–20 minutes or until cooked. Set aside in the tin for 10 minutes.

    Serve with syrup.

    Serves 8–10.

+ Make sure to put your cake tin on a baking tray when baking to catch any drips from the pineapple.
