Donna's notes for this recipe:
This was my husband's Mom's favorite Pineapple Upsidedown Cake. I've been making it for years although I've tweaked it a little. She baked hers in an iron skillet. I bake mine in 9 inch round cake pans. Still really good! Enjoy!

Directions

1
Melt the butter in a pan. Add the brown sugar and stir until melted. Pour into iron skillet or baking pan.
2
Beat egg until light. Add sugar and beat well. Mix the flour and baking powder. Alternately, add flour mixture and milk to the egg/sugar mixture. Beat well and add shortening and vanilla.
3
Arrange the pineapple slices over the brown sugar/butter mixture in the pan. Place a cherry in the middle of each slice. Pour batter evenly over the pineapple. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
4
Immediately turn the cake onto a plate. Spoon any "sauce" that remains in the pan over the cake.
Enjoy!
