Pineapple Upside Down Griddle Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Lemon Syrup Drizzled Over Top

It CAN BE DONE. Here is the recipe for the Razor Griddle upside down pineapple olive oil cake, and it's EXCEEDINGLY EASY.


Tin of pineapple

1 Cup of Olive Oil

1 Cup of Single Cream

1 Cup of Caster Sugar

Zest of 1 Lemon

1 Tsp of Salt

2 Eggs


4 Teaspoons of Baking Powder

For the Syrup:

Juice of 3 Lemons

3/4 Cup of Sugar


Cake tin

Griddle dome (griddle dome has to be taller and wider than the cake tin)


In a bowl, add the olive oil, single cream, caster sugar, lemon zest, salt and eggs, and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.

Next, we've got a bit of guess work - you're aiming for texture here - incrementally add flour until you get a thick texture, so when you lift the whisk out the cake batter flows freely, but the demarcation lines take about 5-10 seconds to go flat. When you're at that stage, mix in the baking powder.

On your Razor, turn two burners to the lowest setting. Oil up the area you need and place the pineapple rings in a circle approximately between, enough that they'll fit within a cake tin with a removable bottom. Pour the cake batter in. around the outside of the cake tin, pour water, and cover with the griddle dome. It'll steam cook, and pretty quickly at that - it took me around 30 mins. Add water under the dome periodically to keep it nice and steamy.

On low heat in a pot, add lemon juice and sugar, and bring to a rolling boil. Once it starts to bubble up, take off the heat.

After about 30mins, insert a wooden skewer at various points in the cake to see if it comes out clean, if not, add more water around the cake tin and continue to steam it until its sets. Flip the cake by putting a plate on top and sliding a large spatula underneath, or if needed, a flat baking tray.

When you flip, the cake might be a bit charred (depending on wind conditions and whether you have wind guards) - just pull those bits off, they'll come away clean. The pineapple tastes amazing with a bit of char, so leave that.

Let the cake cool, take away the cake tin, and poke holes in the cake with a skewer, and pour the lemon syrup over top. Serve, DELICIOUS.
