1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of melted butter

How to Make Pineapple Upside Down Cake
1.1. Take a bundt tin and grease it. This is important so that your cake once baked is removed from the tin easily.
2.2. Pour the melted butter in first and scatter the brown sugar on top of that evenly.
3.3. Arrange the pineapple slices in a circle, dot their centers with cherries and use sliced pineapple or cherries wherever there are blank spaces. Place the bundt tin aside.
4.4. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, oil, sugar and essence and beat with a hand mixer or your stand mixer till well blended.
5.5. In a separate large mixing bowl, sift the flour once with the baking powder and salt then add sifted flour into the batter, one tbsp at a time while beating with the mixer.
6.You should beat it till the batter is smooth and creamy.
7.6. Pour into the prepared bundt tin and bake for 30-40mins at 180 degree Celsius; but since every oven is different; keep a close eye on your cake once it has been in the oven for 20 minutes.
8.7. Remove from oven once cake is golden brown and firm to the touch.
9.8. Let it cool a little, poke tiny holes and drizzle the leftover pineapple juice of the tin 3-4 times.
