It is winter and it is cold. When you have been outside and feel chilled to the bone you need something to warm you through. Good old fashioned comfort food springs to mind. Something simple to make, tasty and doesn't cost very much.
Pineapple upside down cake fits the bill. Traditional fare that even contains some fruit to help keep up your vitamin levels! This serves six people for a total of £1.50.
You will need:
18 cm (7in) round cake tin
Small tin of pineapple rings (ideally in natural juice) - 35p
125g butter or margarine - 30p
125g sugar - 15p
2 eggs, beaten - 50p
175g self-raising flour - 15p
1 tsp baking powder
2 tablespoons of juice from the pineapples
Grease the cake tin. Place the pineapple slices on the bottom of the tin.
Place all the other ingredients in a bowl and mix well together. Use a food processor if you have one. The mixture will be quite soft.
Place the mixture into the cake tin, on top of the pineapple rings and level the surface. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees centigrade for about 45 minutes.
Serve warm with custard, ice cream, cream or evaporated milk.
