Pineapple Upside Down Bundt Cake

Sure! Here’s a recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Bundt Cake:


  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple slices in juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • Maraschino cherries (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a bundt cake pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Drain the pineapple slices and reserve the juice. Set the pineapple slices aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and brown sugar. Mix until well combined. Pour the mixture into the greased bundt pan, spreading it evenly across the bottom.
  4. Place the pineapple slices on top of the butter and sugar mixture in the pan. You can also add maraschino cherries to the center of each pineapple slice, if desired.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

  1. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the creamed butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Pour the batter over the pineapple slices in the bundt pan, spreading it evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, carefully invert the cake onto a serving platter or plate. Gently lift the pan to reveal the pineapple topping.
  5. Allow the cake to cool completely before serving. You can serve it as is or with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
