Pineapple Upside-Down Pina Colada* Cake!
2 tins of pineapple (I used chunks but you can also use slices or whatever)
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of margarine
1 box of vegan cake mix (vanilla or yellow** flavour)
Egg replacer (I'm still tweaking this but it'll probably be best to use it to replace two or three eggs, but to reduce the amount of liquid called for to make them)
1/3 cup of oil (as called for on the package of cake mix)
1 cup of pina colada juice (the package calls for 1 cup of water, but this is WAY better)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. (sorry I don't know what that is in Celsius!)
Melt the brown sugar and margarine together to make a caramel sauce. Pour this sauce into a 9 x 13 inch cake or casserole pan so that the bottom of the pan is coated.
Drain the tins of pineapple (reserve the juice for drinking or using in another recipe), and arrange the pineapple chunks over the caramel sauce.
Now make the cake mix: In a bowl, mash the banana until it is as smooth as possible. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix with an electric beater for about four minutes. Pour this over top of the pineapple chunks. DO NOT STIR!
Pop it in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. (test it at 35 just to be sure; poke it with a toothpick, and if the toothpick comes out clean, it's done!).
Um....I wouldn't actually attempt turning this upside down just because it might fall apart in the process, but it's delicious when cut into slices and served straight from the pan, hehe. I had considered frosting it but it's sweet enough on it's own. :)
* This recipe doesn't contain rum, but I'm sure it'd taste fine if a bit of extract were added to the batter.
** Yellow flavour? What the heck is yellow supposed to taste like? Yet you probably know exactly what sort of cake I am referring to. It's like with freezies; "What flavour do you want?" "Blue!" Mmm blue. Also, why am I rambling here about what colours are supposed to taste like? Alas, if only I knew.
