An upside-down cake is a cake that is baked in a single pan, then turned over and served upside-down.
Usually chopped or sliced fruits such as apples, peaches, pineapples, or cherries and butter and sugar are placed on the bottom of the pan before the batter is poured in, so that they form a baked-on topping after the cake is inverted.
Traditional upside-down preparations include the American pineapple upside-down cake, French Tarte Tatin, and Brazilian or Portuguese Bolo de ananas.
Upside down cakes are always glamorous, since you can see the fruity goodness showing off on the top. This one is a classic and must-bake in pineapple season. For our #Foodiemonday #bloghop event, we are back with #Pineapple recipes. And since long time I wanted to try this upside down cake. As we are on a diet these days, so tried to make them in ramekins so the amount of cake will be sufficient.
