Recipe Scene: Cherry Pineapple Upside Down Cake

I hadn’t made this for ages, then I was invited to a 70’s themed do and felt this would be the perfect thing to take along. Sweet fruit in a sticky caramel glaze atop a fluffy butter cake – yum. You can decorate this however you like and can also replace the pineapple with fresh or tinned pears, peaches or other stone fruit.

Snap Scene: Finucane & Smith Dance Hall – Spiegeltent, Luna Park, 10th October 2018

Arising from the fifteen year partnership of acclaimed volcanic performance artist and writer Moira Finucane and theatre creator and director Jackie Smith, Finucane & Smith engage extraordinary artists and hijack myriad artforms to create intriguing, welcoming, complex and highly politicised ‘worlds’ for their audiences to occupy. Crossing hard core industrial with early opera, the literary gothic with burlesque, circus with drama, feminist performance art with sideshow, fine art with fine food, they celebrate the complexity and redemptive potential of humanity.
