My measurements :
1 cup = 120g
1 cup = 240ml
Used 8 inch round pan::
 
Ingredients:
  • Unsalted Butter - 6 tblsp
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • All Purpose Flour  - 1½ Cup
  • Baking Powder - 1¾ tsp
  • Baking Soda -  ½ teaspoon
  • Unsalted Butter - 6 tblsp
  • Granulated Sugar - ½ cup
  • Eggs - 2
  • Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
  • Buttermilk - ½ cup (120ml)
  • Pineapple Slices -1/2 cup (6 rings)

Instructions:

To make the sugar glaze:
Melt the first measure of butter over a low heat in a heavy bottom sauce pot.Once it is fully melted and just under a boil, remove from heat and stir in sugar.Stir to a thick sandy like texture.

 
Fill in the cake pan...Place the sliced pineaaple pieces. I have also added some strawberry pieces in the gaps.


To make the cake batter:
 
Cream the eggs, butter with granulated sugar until light and fluffy for about 5 minutes.

 
Add in the vanilla extract and buttermilk.

 

In another bowl shift the flour with the baking powder and baking soda.Add this dry ingredients to the egg mixture little by little and fold them gently.

 

Pour the cake batter on top of the prepared sugar glaze & pineapple slices. Bake in a preheated 350°F for approximately 16-20 minutes or until they are springy to the touch when gently pressed in the center. (For the full cake it will take closer to 30-40 minutes)

 
Let cool slightly in the pan and then un-mold onto a serving platter while still warm so the sticky sugar glaze does not cool too much or you will not get them out easily.
