Kitchen Krafts - Easy Peasy Upside Down Pineapple Cake

Welcome to this weeks' Kitchen Krafts.

Today I am going to share a REALLY easy, quick and convenient cake. It is a Tupperware recipe that my sister shared with me to use for my demonstrations many moons ago. The original recipe called for a tin of Pie apples, but I modified it and use a tin of sliced Pineapple. If you have a Quick-shaker at home this would be ideal and you can mix everything inside of it. If you don't have a shaker however, just use a regular jug with a whisk or hand-beater.


1 Egg
Ground Cinnamon 
Tin of Pineapples (you can use sliced, pieces or crushed)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of oil (not in the picture)
1 Shaker lid full of milk (or 2/3 cup)
1 Shaker lid full flour (or 2/3 cup)
1 Shaker lid full sugar (or 2/3 cup)
1 Round Pie dish on a baking tray
1 Quick-Shaker (or jug)

Preheat your oven to 180 Degrees Celsius.

Start by draining your tin of pineapples and laying them on the bottom of your pie dish.

Next, sprinkle cinnamon over the pineapple.

Set pie dish aside and continue with the Quick-shaker.

First break the egg into the shaker.

Add 1 shaker lid of flour to the shaker.

Now add 1 shaker lid full of sugar into the shaker.

And 1 shaker lid full of milk.

Now add 1 teaspoon of oil to the mixture...

And close the lid -SECURELY otherwise you won't be very happy with this recipe :-D

Shake vigorously until it has a wonderful, lump free consistency.

Open the lid and add 2 level teaspoons of Baking Powder.

Close the lid tightly again and shake 6 or 7 times more.

Open the small lid at the top to let it breathe.

Be sure to do this carefully, it can spit at you!

Now close the lid and again shake 6 or 7 times.

Open the container and pour the contents over your pineapples.

Now you can see why it is important to have the pie dish on a tray :-D

Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

You will know when it is ready when you can push a knife into the centre of the cake and it comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool slightly and then loosen around the edges and tip out onto your plate.

Et voilĂ !

Delicious, all cinnamony and warm.
