Pour the melted butter into the baking pan.Preheat oven to 180 degree C.Mix flour and Baking powder and keep aside.
Arrange sliced pineapple and cherries. Keep this aside.
Put the rest of the pineapple into a blender and puree it. Keep it aside.
Lets make the cake batter. Put butter into a large bowl and beat with hand mixer. Then add sugar and again beat/cream it for 1 min.
Add the flour and baking powder...
And add in the pureed pineapple about 1 cup and cream or fold lightly.....the batter should be fluffy and spongy....not very loose, add the pineapple puree accordingly....until you the the consistency....maybe a little more or little less.
Fluffy creamy batter is what I like for my cake.
With a spatula wipe down the sides of the cake-batter- pan.
Pour into the pineapple laden baking tray.
Bake at 180 degree C for 20-30 min or until done. When cooled down, run a knife through the sides.
And turn the cake upside down.Now ready to your pineapple cake.
