My favorite cake recipe from my Betty Crocker's: Bridal Edition cookbook!


  • 1/4 cup butter or stick margarine
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 can (20 ounces) sliced apples or pears or pineapples in juice, drained
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg


  • Melt butter in 10inch ovenproof skillet or square pan (9x9)in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar over butter. Arrange fruit on brown sugar, cutting one or more slices into pieces if necessary.
  • Beat remaining ingredients. Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.Pour over fruit.
  • Bake skillet/pan for 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Immediately turn upside down onto heatproof plate. Let skillet/pan remain over cake a few minutes so brown sugar topping can drizzle over cake. Cool 15 minutes. Serve with Whipped Cream.
  • Enjoy!
