Subscribe for regular videos
As I mention in the video, pineapple upside down cake and I have a bit of a history. Yep in the good old days when I was at school we did some basic cooking ‘attempts’ and pineapple upside down cake was one of those. I made one, it was terrible and wobbly all over, plus by the time I walked home from school with it, I had flipped it several more times. Anyhow, i’m pleased to say I have mastered this cake now, and it is simply delicious with minimal ingredients. Give it a go and let me know how you get on!

My Virgin Kitchen is a YouTube cooking channel I created when I wanted to teach myself how to cook and create a video diary of the journey I have never had a professional lesson & am just your every day chap attempting recipes to inspire you guys to try too. Most uploads are how to recipe cooking videos, but some fun is had too on Sunday Funday when anything goes, including giant foods, mini foods, taste testing foods sent from around the World, food gadgets and many more. Any requests for recipes / cool stuff you’ve seen let me know! I try my best to reply to as many comments as possible, but please interact with eachother and be respectful 🙂



  1. I burnt myself making this cake a i made caramel by myself when i was 9 thanks mum and then i spilt it on my hand

  2. I love this cake!
    I do it a little different, instead of the butter and sugar to coat the mold I use butter and flour. Then I put the pineapple down and coat it with liquid caramel. the rest of the cake I do it the same way as you did. But like this the top layer tastes almost like pudding.
    Try it if you can.

  3. So, I wanted to make this recipe, but ended up translating the video… Oh well, I hope that someone will benefit from the translation 😉

  4. In your website in the cakes ingredients reads 100g caster sugar twice. At the beginning and in the end.

  5. When Barry pulled the lid off, and he said "Oh" I was hoping for a "my gosh." Bit disappointed really.
