Pineapple upside down cake
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 50 mins
- 130g butter, softened
- 100g caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 30g Demerara sugar
- 220g pineapple rings in juice, canned
- 2 tbsp apricot jam
- 100g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp milk
- Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Beat together 30g of the softened butter, Demerara sugar and jam, and spread over the base of an oblong non-stick cake tin. Arrange the pineapple rings over the base of the tin.
- To make the cake mix, beat together the rest of the butter (100g) and caster sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, with 1 tbsp of flour and beat well.
- Sift in the remaining flour and baking powder and fold in well with the milk. Spoon over the pineapple and level with the back of a spoon.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes until well risen and golden – and when a skewer inserted into the middle of it comes out clean.
- Allow to cool in the tin for five minutes then loosen around the edge with a round-bladed knife.
- Place a large serving plate over the top and then carefully turn out the cake. Take care as the syrup will still be very hot.
Pork steaks with apple, sage and cider
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 40 mins
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil
- 4 boneless pork loin steaks
- 250g shallots, peeled
- 2 red skinned apples, cored and sliced
- 300ml cider
- 2 tbsp sage, fresh, chopped
- Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and cook the pork steaks for five minutes per side until lightly browned. Add the shallots to the pan and cook for five minutes until they begin to colour.
- Then add the apple slices, cider and sage, and season to taste. Simmer for 25 minutes over a medium to low heat, stirring gently from time to time, until the juices reduce and the chops are cooked through and covered in a syrupy glaze.
- Serve with sautéed potatoes or fluffy mash and green veg.
