Ingredients:

 

For the Base

  • 6 oz lb butter melted
  • 6 oz brown sugar
  • 6 slices of pineapple, fresh or tinned

 

Dry Ingredients

  • 8 oz plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspn baking powder
  • 1 teaspn salt
  • 1 teaspn grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspn cinnamon powder
  • zest of 2 limes

 

Ingredients to be Creamed

  • 6 oz brown sugar
  • 8 oz butter softened

 

Ingredients to be Beaten

  • 4 eggs beaten
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspn Vanilla

 

Directions:

 

1. For the base

  • Pour the 6 oz melted butter into a rectangular Pyrex dish about 8" x12" or the equivelant.
  • Coat the sides of the pan with butter.
  • Add the 6 oz brown sugar, mix with butter and spread evenly on the bottom of the dish.
  • Place pineapple slices on top of sugar/butter mixture.

 

2. Cream the ingredients in a bowl.

 

3. Mix all dry ingredients together in another bowl, add the ingredients you have creamed and mix together.

 

4. Beat the ingredients until fluffy in another clean bowl. If you wish to make your cake even lighter, beat the yolks and the whites separately, fold together, and then fold in the vanilla and lime juice.

 

5. Then

  • Mix this in with the other ingredients a little at a time to create a batter.
  • Pour this batter into the cake pan covering the pineapple slices and spread evenly.
  • Bake in a low to moderate oven (around 350-375) for 30-40 mins until cooked, and nicely brown on top. Test by sticking a knife in the center and seeing if it comes out clean.
  • When cooked remove from oven.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes.
  • Loosen around the sides with a knife.
  • Put a large plate or dish over the top
  • Turn quickly upside down - the cake will usually drop out on to plate.
  • Give it a shake if it sticks.
  • There should be enough sugar and butter so that you can see it soaking into the top and running down the sides.
  • Let it cool for a while before serving.
