Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Easy to make but with a WOW presentation! It’s tasty, very special and very quick and easy to prepare.


  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine (nuttelex)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • A handful of sultanas
  • 6 glace red cherries
  • 1 can sliced pineapple rings
  • 1 box vegan cake mix (vanilla flavor)
  • Egg replacer
  • Juice from the can of pineapple rings


  1. Start with a medium-sized cast iron fry pan (or a frying pan that is ovenproof) then melt the margarine and add brown sugar until it has dissolved and covers the bottom of the pan.
  2. Remove from heat and immediately place drained pineapple rings in the bottom of the pan (one in the middle, others all around this one). Then pop a red glace cherry in the middle of each pineapple ring and sprinkle sultanas around the rings, set aside.
  3. Mix cake mix according to package instructions except using the pineapple juice instead of water, and egg replacer instead of eggs.
  4. Pour the cake batter over the prepared topping (bottom!) and bake until cake springs back to a touch.
  5. Remove from oven and flip cake over and onto serving plate immediately – being careful to use both hands evenly. If some of the pineapple toppings stay in the pan, just remove and place gently into position on top of the cake.
  6. Let cool slightly and serve with vegan cream or vanilla vegan ice cream.
