Fannie Farmer's Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Introduction

This is a good, old-fashioned recipe, slightly modified, that my family has been using for generations; my father always chose it for his birthday cake. By no means healthy, it is simple and delicious...and definitely to be eaten in moderation!

Ingredients

    10 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
    1 c. dark brown sugar
    1/4 c. natural pineapple juice
    6 whole pineapple rings
    3 maraschino cherries, halved
    1/2 c. milk (1% used for nutrition info)
    1 egg
    1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 c. granulated sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 C). Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in an ovenproof skillet or an 8- or 9-inch cake pan. Stir in the brown sugar and continue to stir over low heat for 2 minutes. Add the pineapple juice and continue stirring until sugar dissolves; remove from heat. Arrange the pineapple rings in one layer in the pan (1 in the center, surrounded by the other 5), and the cherry halves cut-side up into the center of the rings; 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 granulated sugar in a medium mixing bowl, then add the milk-egg mixture and beat until smooth. Pour over the pineapple slices and bake for 25-35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn over onto a plate, fruit side up. Leave pan in place for a few minutes longer, to allow any remaining sauce to drip down the cake.

Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
