Trying different types of cake flavours  from the usual  will always be a fantastic experience with lots of expectation that the cake tried should come out as desired. I tried this pineapple upside down cake dessert for the first time and it turned out really good.The combination of cake and the caramelized pineapples was a perfect balance of flavours and the texture of the cake was also extremely convincing. I read some where that this pineapple upside down cake dessert was made usually in castor iron pan in olden days and even now some follow the same exact method. This particular pineapple upside down cake dessert recipe is from the

pineapple upside down cake dessert

author Rosy Levy Beranbaum and I followed all her instructions with some minor changes. She has instructed to use 10 inch pan but I have used a 8 inch pan but it was perfect for me. But when you try this cake you better use 10 inch pan so that you will be more comfortable and confident. To be more careful you can grease the sides of the pan lightly yet its optional but I did it. The oven temperatures differs for each oven so follow accordingly. I have made it with tinned pineapples but you can even try with fresh pineapple slices.

Please look up and bake at your own oven temperature as it differs for each oven. You can immediately invert the cake after the baking is over. Cut the cake after 5 minutes. To be sure that the cake leave the sides I have lightly greased the sides alone with little butter but its not necessary. You can use fresh pineapples also and do this cake. Before making this cake all the ingredients like butter and eggs should be at room temperature. I have used a 8 inch pan but you can use a 10 inch pan so that there will be free space for cake to rise. If you want to sieve the dry ingredients you can do it.
