Pineapple upside down cake recipe

Prep time: 15 min Bake time: 45 min to 1 hr Ingredients 1/4 cup butter or margarine 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 1 can sliced pineapple in juice, drained 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup shortening 3/4 cup milk 1 1/2 tsps baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 egg Maraschino cherries, optional Whipped topping, optional

Directions

Step one Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Step two Melt the butter or margarine in a 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan in the oven. Step three Add the brown sugar to the melted butter or margarine, but you don't have to mix it together. Just sprinkle it on. Place the pineapple slices in the pan on the brown sugar and butter mixture. Step four Put a cherry in the middle of each pineapple slice. If you are using cherries that have stems, (cocktail cherries) then put them on when the pineapple upside down cake is finished baking. Step five Add all ingredients except the whipped topping to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low speed for thirty seconds. Scrape the batter from the sides of the bowl while mixing with a spatula. Continue to beat the mixture for another few minutes on high speed while scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Step six Add the mixture to the pan with the pineapple on the bottom. Step seven Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for forty-five minutes to one hour or until done. Test the cake to see if it is done by inserting a toothpick in the centre. If the toothpick comes out without crumbs on it, the cake is done. Step eight Turn the pan upside down on a plate and let it cool for a few minutes before you remove the pan. Serve the cake warm with some whipped topping, if desired. It makes nine servings.
