I've got a certain fascination with up-side down cakes. Perhaps its the ideal of a buttery and go-ey surprise hiding at bottom of the pan. The main reason is because the cake is just so good with fruit baked in a sticky syrup.
For this edition of the Home Bakers hosted by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours, the chosen cake is the Pineapple Macadamia Upside Down Cake. I simply love pineapple in bakes so this cake has been in my to-do list for the longest time. Most upside down cakes, unlike this recipe, I know use canned pineapples. The fresh pineapples were naturally sweet, and their flavours enhanced by the maple syrup (original recipe called for corn syrup but I substituted it for a richer flavour). Together with the macadamias, it went perfectly with the buttery cake.
I loved this cake, thank you Alice of I Love. I Cook. I Bake for this great choice! Please click here for the full recipe.
