    Preheat Oven 350 degrees: Melt the butter with the brown sugar. Distribute the pineapple chunks on the bottom of the baking pan. Cover the pineapples with the melted butter and brown sugar. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. In a mix master combine the butter and sugar; then add the eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract and reserved pineapple juice.
