Pineapple Upside Down Cake (Eggless)


Refined flour (maida) - 250g
Condensed milk - 1 tin (400 ml)
Butter - 125g
Sugar - 6 tsp
Pineapple slices - 10
Club soda - 1 bottle
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Yellow food colour - 1/2 tsp
Pineapple essence - 1/2 tsp
Glazed or fresh cherries - 6


  • Take sugar in a nonstick pan, and caramelise it on medium flame.
  • Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until sugar dissolves and turn into a golden brown syrup like honey.
  • Immediately remove from heat and pour in the baking dish coating the base evenly.
  • It may not cover the whole bottom now, but will melt and spread while cooking.
  • Now arrange pineapple slices over it, and put cherry or walnut pieces in between.
  • Mix refined flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and sieve twice.
  • Take a mixing bowl and add melted butter (on room temperature), essence, colour and condensed milk and mix well.
  • Chop 4 pineapple slices into small pieces and mix in the butter and milk mixture.
  • Now add 2 tbsp flour mixture in the milk mixture, and mix well.
  • Now add 2 tbsp of soda water and mix it.
  • And keep repeating this process (step 7 and 8), until you finished the flour mixture.
  • Don't mix the full can of soda water.
  • You need approx half can of drinking soda.
  • The mixture should be of dropping consistency (slightly thicker then the pakora batter).
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degree C or 338 degrees F for 40 - 45 minutes.
  • Place the cake in the center rack.
  • Check with a tooth pick insert it in the center, if cake is done perfectly then it comes out clean.
  • When done, remove from the oven and cool off for 10 minutes.
  • Run a sharp knife around the edges and then invert the cake onto your serving plate.
  • Don't allow the cake to be in the baking tin for more then 5 - 10 minutes, otherwise the caramel becomes hard again and the pineapple topping will stick to the pan.
