Upside - down pineapple cupcakes

I have always liked upside - down cakes. There are very easy to make and look nice. This time I decided to bake upside - down cupcakes. That was a dessert for my family so we did not need all big cake, small cupcakes were more than enough. The recipe comes form this website.

Ingredients for 4 cupcakes:
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 4 pineapple slices
  • few glace cherries
  • 85g self - rising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g margarine
  • 2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 190C.

Grease 4 heatproof baking tins. Pour 1 tbsp golden syrup to each tin. Then place in the middle of each baking tin one pineapple slice and cherry in the middle. For one cupcake I chopped some glace cherries and sprinkled around pineapple (see the first picture)

Into an electric mixer bowl sift the flour, baking powder. Add the sugar, margarine and eggs. Beat all ingredients for 3 minutes until smooth and creamy. 

Spoon the batter into prepared earlier baking tins. Place in the oven for 30 minutes. Bake until the toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Remove form oven and left in the baking tins for a few minutes to cool down a little bit.

Place the plate over the top of each tin and turn upside down. Lift the tin away.  Enjoy !
