Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a simple and delicious dessert to make for your friends and family. Pineapple does have a high sugar count, which means lots of carbs. So enjoy the taste, but limit yourself to one piece of cake.
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 (8¼ oz) can Unsweetened Crushed Pineapple in juice (drained, juice reserved)
1 envelope Knox Unflavoured Gelatine
1 Egg White
¾ cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
¾ cup All-purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 9-inch × 1½-inch round baking pan with waxed paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Sprinkle brown sugar on waxed paper. Spread crushed pineapple evenly in bottom of pan; sprinkle gelatine over top.
In large bowl, beat eggs and egg white until very thick. Gradually beat in granulated sugar.
Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure ⅓ cup; beat into egg mixture along with vanilla.
In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to egg mixture, beating until batter is smooth. Pour into pan. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Immediately loosen cake from edge of pan with knife; invert pan on plate. Carefully remove waxed paper; slice into 8 pieces.
Tips & Notes
Pineapple is a sweet treat with a lot of health benefits. It is fat-free and full of vitamins and fiber, but what about the carbs? Because pineapple is sweet, there are carbs to consider, especially if you have type 2 diabetes. When you eat carbohydrates, either simple or complex, your body breaks them down into sugars, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. If you have diabetes, this can make your blood sugar rise which can be harmful to your health. It’s a good idea to keep track of how many carbs you eat at a meal.
When counting carbs, fruit is always a healthier nutritional choice than a packaged snack or rich dessert.
