Eggless Pineapple (Annasi Pazham) Upside Down Cake

Eggless_Pineapple_Annasi_Pazham_Upside_Down_Cake_1 Pineapple gives a lovely aroma and nice taste in whichever dish you add. Eggless Pineapple Upside Down Cake is very attractive and it is my dream cake to bake. To bake this cake, I used tinned pineapple (as pineapple slices are neatly shaped), glazed cherry (to make more attractive cake), jaggery and butter. This cake uses eggless sponge cake recipe.

Pineapple is known as Annasi Pazham in Tamil.

    What is jaggery? Where do I get it?

  • Kamala January 7, 2011, 9:18 pm

    @ Sue Lavelle
    Jaggery is popular in Asia and is prepared from sugar cane juice. It is not bleached or chemically processed.

    @ neha nawalgaria
    I baked this cake in ‘convection mode’ in microwave oven. I have not yet tried it in ‘microwave mode’. Refer your microwave user manual to select the suitable mode.
