Gluten free Pineapple Upside-down Cake

Pineapple Upside-down Cake
 This is one of my favorite cakes. I find it is a nice light desert.
I just love when its fresh from the oven and you pop it out of its tin. It has such a golden yellow colour and then you get that lovely red shine off the cherry halves.
I like to make mine in a 1lb loaf tin. I find it looks so much more stunning as a loaf but this same recipe will work baked in a sandwich tin also.

I like to have mine with yummy warm custard, have yours with anything you want, its also nice with cream.
