The sun is shining, the weather is sweet

Posted on

Well, ok, it’s not really tropical here, but at least it’s not the Arctic conditions of last week. To celebrate we’ve made individual Caribbean-upside-down-cakes. (Also because Daddy Bear loves upside-down-cake and he is back at work this week whilst Mummy Bear and the Little Bears are still at home. They certainly soften the blow!)

Individual portions are excellent for the Bears House. Then nobody can complain about who got the bigger piece of pineapple. Or, when Daddy Bear decides to reheat it and forgets it’s in the oven, he only ruins his own one, not everyone’s.

These get the official name of Caribbean-upside-down-cakes because Mummy Bear is still desperately trying to finish off the bottle of Coconut Rum without actually having to drink it. Basically they’re just a boozy version of normal upside down cake. But it definitely sounds better doesn’t it?!

Ingredients:

2 large eggs (about 50g each without shells)

100g Self Raising Flour

100g Stork

50g Caster Sugar

50g Light Brown Soft Sugar

4 tbsp Golden Syrup

4 pineapple rings

4 whole glace cherries

1 tbsp Coconut Rum

Preheat the oven to 150 C.

Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat gently. Add the Stork, the sifted flour and both of the sugars. Whisk gently until combined with a hand whisk. Add in the rum and whisk again.

Lightly grease four ramekin dishes, then spoon a tablespoon of golden syrup into the bottom of each one. Place a pineapple ring on top of the syrup in each ramekin, and then a glace cherry in the hole in the middle of the ring. Split all of the batter equally between the four ramekin dishes, spreading it gently over the top of the fruit so not to displace too much of the syrup.

Pop the four ramekins in the oven for around 35 ish minutes (until the centre of the cake springs back when touched). Leave to cool in the ramekins for 20 minutes. Run a butter knife around the edges, and then turn out onto a plate – perfect pudding cake!

Let’s hope that spring is FINALLY on its way. Or at least that it has definitely finished snowing for the next six months.

  1. What a cute, fun idea! For us, the individual servings would prevent me from eating three or four servings in one sitting… They just look too sweet and delicious!
