Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I’ve baked this cake umteen times now and each time it’s a big hit! Traditionally you see the pineapple rings cut into half and placed in the bottom of the baking tray. But I used the cubes instead and cut them into halves and placed them like this in the tray, pictured below. It looks really pretty and I don’t use the maraschino cherries only because I don’t like them… ha ha.



  • 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) (55 grams) unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
  • 3/4 cup (160 grams) light brown sugar
  • 1 medium pineapple(peeled, quartered, cored, and sliced 1/4 inch thick)
  • Maraschino cherries or candied cherries (optional)

Cake Batter:

  • 1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
