  1. Melt butter in a round 9 1/2 inch baking pan..stir in the brown suger..

  4. Add egg and vanilla..beat 1 minute.

  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..:)
