Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I’m excited to share one of my daughter’s favorite cake recipes. This easy cake recipe is great if you are new to baking with your kids, or looking for a recipe your child can try on their own or,  you just want a quick easy dessert for guests. This Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake is perfect for the job. Baking a cake doesn’t get any easier than this. With just  a few ingredients you probably already have in you kitchen, you are guaranteed success and a fun time baking with your kids and a cake made completely from scratch with no artificial ingredients. I made this cake with fresh pineapple but feel free to substitute canned pineapple. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we do. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  1. Separate 8 eggs whites from egg yolks
  2. In a 12” oven proof skillet or pan, melt sugar and butter under medium flame
  3. Peal and cut fresh pineapple (I recommend fresh pineapple, but you may use canned pineapple) and arrange slices on top of melted butter and sugar mixture
  4. For the cake mix, in a mixing bowl whip 8 egg whites and gradually add 8 Tablespoons of sugar
  5. Once well mixed add 8 egg yolks
  6. Gently fold in 1/2 cup of flour into the egg mixture and gradually add 1/4 of milk and 1/4 cup of oil and pour over the pineapple mixture and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
  7. Let cake cool for about 15 minutes, run knife around edge of cake then carefully invert into a platter.
