Preparation time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 55 minutes | Serves: 8


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 can (20 oz) pineapple slices, drained
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Place the melted butter in a 9-inch round cake pan and sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.
  2. Arrange the pineapple slices on top of the brown sugar, placing a cherry in the center of each slice.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk.
  5. Pour the batter over the pineapple slices in the cake pan and spread it out evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow the cake to cool for 5 minutes, then invert it onto a serving platter. Serve warm and enjoy!
