Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Inverted skillet cakes have long been a feature of worldwide baking, the most famous example being the French Tarte Tatin. But it was in the 1920’s, after World War I, that exotic tinned pineapple became widely available in America and the upside-down cake became a favourite pudding!
Finished size: 7cm x 7cm x 5cm.
Materials: Paintbox Yarns Simply DK, 5g Mustard Yellow, 3g Pillar Red, 10g Soft Fudge; crochet hook size 3.5mm; stuffing; tapestry needle for sewing in ends; scissors.
The pattern is written in standard UK crochet terminology and is suitable for beginners. The main stitches used for the cake are the double crochet and half treble crochet. You can find tutorials for both of these stitches in the Crochet How-To Techniques section of the LoveCrafts website.
