1/4 cup milk.
1/2 tsp.vanilla essence/pineapple essence
For the pineapple base(to be turned up )
Pineapple slices(tinned or fresh core removed)
8 oz brown sugar/demerera sugar

Sprinkle the flat baking pan with the sugar and pour over melted margarine.
Arrange the pineapple slices on top of the sugar.
For the cake
Cream the margarine and sugar until light and pale.Add the eggs one at a time.Fold in the flour add milk .Pour the batter over the pineapple (1 inch high).Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees)for 35- 40 minutes.Turn out on a flat plate.
