  • 50 grams of butter for caramel
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 120 grams of butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice


Step 1

Turn on the oven and set it to a temperature of 180 ° C. grease my baking pan with spray oil. A round mold with a size between 20 and 23 cm for this cake.

Step 2

Place butter and brown sugar into a pan on a medium heat. Whisk them until smooth and sugar is completely dissolved and you can see bubbles on the surface.

Step 3

Pour the sugar and butter mixture into the cake pan. Swirl the pan to form a thin, smooth layer of caramel sauce.

Step 4

After Caramel sauce is cooled, place pineapple rings on caramel sauce. Put pitted cherries or sour cherries, in the middle of the pineapple rings.

Step 5

Bring the butter out of the refrigerator to the room temperature. Put sugar and butter in a bowl and mix for 5 minutes to make a smooth cream. Add the eggs and stir for about 1 minute to mix well.

Step 6

Now, at this step you should mix flour and pineapple juice. Divide the flour into three parts and pineapple juice into two halves. First, put one third of the flour and add half of a pine apple juice, stir, then add one third of the flour, stir, then add rest of the pineapple juice, stir and finally mix the remaining flour and stir. All this should take a minute, so do not overdo it.

Step 7

The batter of this cake is thick, so be careful not to put it in one place, because when you spread it, you will mess up the fruits and caramel sauce. Put the cake batter carefully on the pineapples and then trim it with a little spoon.

Step 8

Put the cake in the middle rack of the oven. It takes about 45 minutes to bake. Check with a toothpick or knife to make sure it is baked and then remove it from the oven.
