No Fuss Pineapple Upside-Down Sponge Cake

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

This Nigella inspired recipe is one of the fastest and easiest cake recipes I know.
And the cake looks really attractive.
It took me about 5 minutes to prepare it and another 30 minutes for cooking.
And the ingredients you need are basic ingredients – I’m sure most of you have these stacked in your kitchen cupboard all the time.
You can substitute the pineapple for other fruit you like/have, I believe it will be as tasty as the original recipe.
I haven’t done it myself, but would love to try it with bananas,oranges,grapes,peaches, anything!:-)

Here’s what you need.


  • 5-6 slices fresh pineapple
  • 100g/3.5oz flour
  • 100g3.5oz sugar
  • 200g/7ozbutter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • butter for greasing
  • sugar for dusting
