If you are looking for the buttery, gooey pineapple upside down cake, it is not here. But, if you are looking for a variation of it that is healthy and counts as 2 WW points per serving, you have found it. While visiting a forum that I am a member of, I clicked on the healthy recipes and found this one from Bunny. Everything that she makes comes out wonderful, so I knew that I wanted to try it.
The verdict of this cake? It was actually ok. It is healthier than the normal cake, so don't expect it to taste just like it, but it was good.
Pineapple Right Side Up Cake
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drain and reserve juice
1/3 cup skim milk
1/3 cup egg substitute, or 4 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 inch square pan with cooking spray. Stir together the applesauce, reserved pineapple juice, milk, egg substitute, and vanilla. Combine flour, white sugar and baking powder. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Spread batter into the pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with crushed pineapple. Sprinkle brown sugar over the pineapple. Bake for 30 minutes until a toothpick tests clean. Cool 10 minutes and serve warm.
I like cherries in my pineapple cake, so I topped each serving with a cherry and it sank to the middle of the cake. So, it is like you get a surprise with every serving! :)
