Pineapple slices that cover the bottom of your pan
1/4 to 1/2 cup butter
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Cup flour
1 tsp. double-acting baking powder
4 eggs, separted
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Cup sugar

Melt in skillet 1/4 to 1/2 cup butter.

Add packed brown sugar and cook gently and stir until dissolved.

When dissolved remove pan from the heat and add the pineapple slices; coat the slices well.

Add this mixture to your baking pan and set aside.

Sift flour and baking powder together in a bowl, set aside.

In another bowl beat the 4 egg yolks; add 1 tbsp. melted butter and vanilla. Set aside.

In another bowl measure 1 cup sugar. Set aside

In mixer, whip the 4 egg whites until stiff but not dry; then fold in sugar 1 tbsp. at a time as not to deflate the egg whites, then add the yolk mixture and then add the flour 1/4 cup at a time.

Pour over the pineapple in the baking pan and bake at 325F for 30 minutes, or until golden and tooth pick comes out clean in centre.

This recipe comes from a lady I worked with. It is different from most pineapple up-side down cakes. It has a nice cake top that is crunchy but moist inside and I do find it sweet.

I hope you enjoy this cake as we do.
