3/4 cup brown sugar
glace or maraschino cherries
1 1/3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 8x8" dish well. Sprinkle brown sugar over bottom of dish. Arrange pineapple rings and cherries over brown sugar. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Blend in egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients, alternating with milk.
3. Pour batter over fruit and bake 40-45 minutes until golden brown on the bottom and sides, and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
4. Let cool exactly 5 minutes, then turn out onto serving plate. If you let the cake cool too long, the sugar will set making it impossible to turn out nicely!
