Eggless Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Eggless Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a sinful dessert made with fresh pineapple slices. The caramelized pineapple pieces add a wonderful flavour to the whole cake.

I had been planning on making a beautiful upside down cake ever since Daddy picked up a Delmonte Pineapple tin. I wasn’t sure why he picked up as we mostly get fresh fruits and sometimes the whole pineapple. Its been in my fridge for a year now and I was always remembering that it has a 2 year period.

Back of my mind, I have been wanting to bake an upside down cake ever since I saw the recipe at Bake with Sivash. I have a pineapple upside down cake already and never bothered to check it again. I loved the pictures and even saved up some cherries too. Imagine my shock and surprise when I open the tin to only realize its got titbits!

It was 8 in the evening and I had no option to lay my hands on slices. So I just went ahead and used it as such! We are starting the new edition with BM#97 week 1 being Upside Down Dishes. The idea is to showcase dishes that are baked/cooked upside down.

  1. Finding tidbits when you planned to make this upside down cake must have been quite a surprise. Life throws some interesting curve balls at us 🙂 Good thing that you went ahead and made the cake anyway – it looks delicious.

  2. The texture of the cake has turned out nice. I like your version where you have chopped and added the pieces instead of adding whole pieces.

  3. Using the Tit bits might not be traditional , but looks great all the same ! The texture looks fantastic !
    Even my Frig has some ingredients that need to be used up – must check their dates .

  4. Wow! Valli, this version sounds just as good. I bet it must have been disappointing to realize that the pineapple tidbits will have to do for the cake. But when life throws lemons we make lemonade, right?
