How to Make Simply deliscious moist pineapple upside down cake


  1. Melt butter in a round 9 1/2 inch baking pan..stir in the brown suger..
    Arrange chunked pineapple in pan over the butter/brown suger mixture..( I usually stir it all up and then even it out nicely..), also prefer crushed pineapple..but I think the chunked works just as well),
  2. Combine flour, baking powder & salt. Set aside..
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat shortening 30 seconds. Add sugar; beat till well combined..
  4. Add egg and vanilla..beat 1 minute.
  5. Add dry ingredients alternately w/milk to beaten mixture( shortening mixture), beating after each addition..
  6. Very carefully spread in pan over pineapple chunks..smoothing it out evenly..
  7. Bake in 350° oven for 50-55 minutes..( check it after 40 min.) till a nice golden color..
    Cool in pan for 5 minutes..invert into serving plate..serve warm..makes 8 servings..enjoy
  8. NOTE: you can easily turn this into rhubarb upside cake..which w/following this the bomb..even if ya don't like rhubarb..:)
    Just use 2 cups fresh or frozen rhubarb, cut up into 1/2-1 inch pieces..
  9. Enjoy..:)
    Incidentally..I've made it w/both..
  10. P.s. When I made this..( the one in the picture.) ..I only had one can of chunked pineapple..I just every spaced it out, the best I could..;)
