BEL’OCCHIO   …the beautiful eye



My tattered and torn Robin Hood Flour Baking cookbook holds so many treasured memories.   This small book of recipes was included with a bag of Robin Hood Flour.  The recipes are tried and true and more than fifty years old.

I love the way the caramelized buttery brown sugar compliments the tart pineapple. This simple to make recipe requires just one bowl.  All the ingredients are probably in your pantry.   You can use pineapple slices or pieces of pineapple.  If you want to be truly “old school” you can arrange maraschino cherries on top of the pineapple.

This is the kind of dessert you can whip up in a few minutes.  It is the perfect ending to a simple supper.    It is also a delicious treat with morning coffee or afternoon treat.

  1. Wow!! Looks delicious!

    • I made this cake for Sunday supper. It is beckoning me from the counter as I write. “Just a little nibble. Something to have with your coffee”. Such an old favorite. Such a good and tasty friend.

      • You gotta have some with coffee then!!!

      • I’m putting a pot of coffee on right now!!

  2. Thanks for reminding me about this cake, which used to be one of my mom’s favorite cakes. I haven’t had a piece in years, but that will change very soon–thanks to your recipe.

    • This was such a popular cake way back when… and it still has a lot of admirers. Bake this cake in honour of your Mom, Gayle.

  3. I love to bake this over just a tad to get the edges crispy and really caramelize the sugars………….oh you temptress, you know Tinny is on an awful diet!!

    • We must keep you on the straight and narrow, Tinny … oh well … just think how svelte and elegant you will look!!

  4. Yummmy!

  5. Mmmmm

  6. A tasty classic that I’d forgotten about! Thanks, Virginia! xo

    • It is so retro – but then everything retro is new again. I hear the latest shout is deviled eggs as appetizers. XxOO V.

  7. There is a reason this is such a classic dessert. Not only is it easy to prepare but it tastes so good.

    • I love pineapple upside down cake. As a child it was my favorite and it was one of the first desserts I learned to make. I love serving it at elegant dinner parties. It always is met with great joy … especially from those of a certain age Karen. XX Virginia
