    recipe title: Pineapple Upside-Down Cake (Skillet)
    category: Desserts
    keywords: cake, pineapple
    servings: 8
          1 cn Pineapple Slices In Syrup
               (1 pound 4 ozs)
        1/4 c  Butter
        2/3 c  Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
               Maraschino Cherries
          1 c  Unbleached Flour, Unsifted
        3/4 c  Granulated Sugar
      1 1/2 ts Baking Powder
        1/2 ts Salt
        1/2 c  Milk
        1/4 c  Vegetable Oil (Or Solid
               Vegetable Shortening)

        1/4 ts Grated Lemon Rind
          1 ts Lemon Juice
          1 ts Vanilla Extract
    This one may be a little strange to you, but is a classic in its own right. The difference between this one and the one you usually find in the cookbook, is that this one uses a skillet for a baking pan. Drain the pineapple, reserving 2 Tbls of the juice. Melt the butter in a heavy 10-inch ovenproof skillet. Stir in the brown sugar and reserved pineapple syrup, blending well. Remove from the heat. Arrange the pineapple slices in the sugar mixture in a balanced arrangement. Place a maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple slice. Combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk and oil then beat, with an electric mixer set on high speed, for 2 minutes. Add the egg, lemon rind, lemon juice and vanilla extract and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Carefully pour the batter over the pineapple in the skillet, spreading evenly. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the cake tests done. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a serving plate upside down on the top of the skillet and invert the skillet and plate. Serve this cake warm. VARIATION: For Peach Upside-Down Cake, use a can of peach halves instead of the pineapple slices and proceed as above. From The Food Fare Section Rocky Mountain News September 3, 1986
