TT: It's a Classic
It was time to go back to basics. We all know how much of a sucker I am for nostalgia, for a past time, for a classic of any sort.
This week it's the upside down pineapple cake.
There's a funny story behind my baking this cake and you'll never guess how it started. You see, sadly I am now very familiar with the latest Play School cast. For overseas readers this is the all time and all loved children's television show where presenters read stories, play games and beloved soft toys all around. It was my hole childhood growing up and with a little nephew it has become a part of my life again. A favourite episode of my nephew's contains the presenter making, rather poorly an upside down pineapple cake.
And thus the notion was just right there for the taking - my little nephew had to see this in real life, done properly (let's incorporate all the flour in fully now!) Of course I used a different and I'm almost 100% positive better recipe and it turned rather upside-downy delicious. I would suggest you serve it warm and with a dollop of cream - because what isn't better with cream!
I'm dreadfully sorry my camera hasn't been getting any sort of work out of late, this dismal almost-all-eaten iPhone photo is going to have to suffice.
