Spread evenly being careful not to disarrange the pineapple. Place on center rack of oven and bake 40-45 minutes, or until cake springs back to light touch. After the cake is done, let the skillet stand on a wire rack 5 minutes to cool just slightly, and then loosen edges with a small spatula. Place serving platter over the cake, and turn upside down. Shake gently, and lift off skillet. Serve with 1 cup heavy cream whipped.
