I meant to write this post when I actually made this cake for couple of friends who were invited over afternoon tea. I also made this cake to utilize my cake tin that comes especially for this cake. My mother had this pan for a long time. It was after I started this blog and reading different blogs, came to know that this is not only a design rather it was made to place pineapple rings and cherries. When my mother visited me last year, she thoughtfully brought that pan for me.
This is a beautiful cake, the caramelized brown sugar sitting on top of tender pineapple rings and splash of red cherries, underneath is a soft butter cake flavored with pineapple juice. A true comfort. Its a very impressive cake as well given the little effort put in, just make sure you are careful with the oven temperature as brown sugar can easily burn which can spoil the entire cake. The recipe comes from the baking classes I used to take when I was in school. Although I searched for some recipes before trying this one but decided to stick to this recipe atleast for now.
