Something I learnt this week
Apparently you learn something new every day, so I figured that it would be easy enough to articulate something that I had learned each week (there should be seven at least after all). Actually coming up with something useful that I learned isn't all that easy.
This week I learned how to make pineapple upside down cake (like I've got the time to be making cake!). Anyway it didn't take that long and it was a fairly simple process.
I got the recipe from here the wonderful recipe threads at Scribblygum (here, here, or here).
The threads themselves are a little hard to find. If you are interested, this is the fifth and it has links to the previous four.
The recipe I used (thanks to jj):
Pineapple Upside down Cake
preheat oven to 350C If it's as old as our kgtn one ... or till the piece of brown paper in the oven takes "X" seconds to brown if it's like the one in my kitchen ... (in which case this should begin with chop the wood)
line the roasting tin with layers of paper ... (lots of practise with scissors there)
1 cup of pineapple pieces drained
4 cups SR flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup oil
Put the drained pineapple pieces into the cake tin.
Mix the dry things ..
Mix the wet things
Mix wet stuff with the dry stuff
Pour the mixture in on top of the pineapple pieces.
Cook until you remember to take it out and it doesn't make your finger gooey when you touch the top. about half an hour to 40 minutes ...
I think the temperature is an error and it should be 350 degrees Fahrenheit (how to spell this is something else I have now learnt this week) rather than Celsius. That translates to around 175 degrees Celsius - a little under what I cooked it at and probably just perfect.
