Your Host, Brad
12 Tbl butter
1 cup dark-brown sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice
5 whole pineapple rings
5 Maraschino cherries
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Melt 4 tablespoons of
the butter in an oven-proof skillet or an 8 to 9 inch cake pan. Stir in the brown
sugar and continue to stir over low heat until it dissolves. Remove from the heat
and add the pineapple juice.
Arrange the pineapple rings in one layer in the pan and
place a cherry in the center of each; set aside.
Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons butter in a small
pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and egg, beating well. Mix the
flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl, then add the milk-egg mixture and beat
until smooth. Pour over the pineapple slices and bake for about 35 minutes, or until
a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes then invert onto a
flat dish at least 2 inches wider than the cake so that the fruit side is up.
