Am craving to eat a cake and first thing to do is to check what I have in my pantry. Found a can of pineapple cubes so this is the time to bake Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
This cake looks complicated but actually it was super easy. In fact you can use any of your favorite plain cake. Preferred my cake to be less sweet since it has a sweet topping.
Normally Pineapple Upside Down Cake uses pineapple ring but I made it using pineapple cubes and really happy it turned out fantastic without sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Reserve 1/4 cup of the syrup before draining. After draining the pineapple, use a paper towel the squeeze out the excessive liquid
