  • 2/3 cup butter divided
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 20 oz can sliced pineapple, drained
  • Maraschino cherries optional
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • whipped cream if desired
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt 1/3 cup butter and pour into the bottom of a 9 inch baking pan. (you can use round, square or even a cast iron skillet) Sprinkle brown sugar over the melted butter. Arrange the pineapple in a pattern of your choosing and place cherries throughout.
  2. In a large bowl beat the remaining ingredients until well combined. Pour over pineapple.
  3. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of the cake comes out clean or with very few crumbs. Immediately turn cake upside down onto a heatproof serving platter. Let pan remain on the cake for 10 minutes to let all the juices and caramel soak into the cake. Cool and serve slightly warm. Top with whipped cream if desired.
