Cherry Pineapple Upside-Down Cake


Cherry Pineapple Upside-Down Cake recipe















1 tablespoon butter
½ cup brown sugar
light, packed
24 pineapple
in unsweetened juice, slices
9 maraschino cherries
1 cup cake flour
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 each eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon coconut extract


Brush bottom and sides of 9-inch square baking pan with butter. Sprinkle brown sugar over bottom of pan.

Drain pineapple slices reserving ½ cup juice. Arrange 9 pineapple slices on brown sugar in pan.

Place 1 maraschino cherry in center of each pineapple slice. Purée 2 pineapple slices. Reserve remaining pineapple slice for another use.

Stir together cake flour, sugar and baking powder in bowl.

In another container, combine ¼ cup puréed pineapple, ½ cup pineapple juice, egg, vanilla and coconut extract.

Quickly combine liquid ingredients with dry ingredients, stirring just until blended. Pour batter over pineapple in pan, spreading evenly.

Bake at 350℉ (180℃) F for 20 to 25 minutes or until cake tests done in center and is golden brown. Cool about 5 minutes. Loosen cake around edges of pan.

Place inverted serving platter over cake and turn both upside down. Shake gently, then remove pan. Slice into squares and serve warm.


When preparing the cake, stir the liquid and dry ingredients together just until blended --- overmixing causes toughness. Also watch the baking closely.

Bake only until the center of the cake tests done -- overbaking causes dryness and toughness. This cake is best when eaten warm.

You may want to serve it with nonfat frozen yogurt or a dollop of low-fat whipped topping.
