Ingredients

4
eggs
1/2 c
butter
1 c
packed light brown sugar
1 can(s)
20oz can sliced pineapple, drained
12
cherries (optional) i dont like cherries so i don't put any lol
1 c
flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
white sugar
1 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/2 tsp
almond extract (optional) (i prefer vanilla)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C)
2
In a 10 inch heavy skillet with a heat-resistant handle (I use a cast iron skillet), melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine over very low heat. Remove from heat, and sprinkle brown sugar evenly over pan. Arrange pineapple slices to cover bottom of pan. Distribute cherries around pineapple; set aside
3
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt
4
Separate the eggs into two bowls. In a large bowl, beat egg whites just until soft peaks form. Add granulated sugar gradually, beating well after each addition. Beat until stiff peaks form. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks at high speed until very thick and yellow. With a wire whisk or rubber scraper, using an over-and-under motion, gently fold egg yolks and flour mixture into whites until blended. Fold in 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine and almond extract. Spread batter evenly over pineapple in pan.
5
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until surface springs back when gently pressed with fingertip. Loosen the edges of the cake with table knife. Cool the cake for 5 minutes before inverting onto serving plate
