One of our followers on Facebook requested my recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake and I am more than happy to oblige. The problem, since we are moving next month, all of my recipes are packed!!! It took me a bit of time but I finally found the recipe again online.

I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as mine does.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple slices, undrained
9 maraschino cherries
2 large eggs, separated
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (optional)

Step 1
Melt butter in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet. Spread brown sugar evenly over bottom of skillet. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice; set juice aside. Arrange pineapple slices in a single layer over brown sugar mixture, and place a cherry in center of each pineapple ring; set skillet aside.

Step 2
Beat egg yolks at medium speed with an electric mixer until thick and lemon-colored; gradually add granulated sugar, beating well.

Step 3
Heat reserved pineapple juice in a small saucepan over low heat. Gradually add juice mixture to the yolk mixture, beating until blended.
