Segment 1 (The Whole Megillah)
  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner
  • Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
  • Description
    • I love Pineapple Upside down cake - that was THE dessert that my dad always prepared for holiday dinners, picnics, etc.  Russ, regretfully, is NOT a big fan of pineapple... so I don't get the chance to prepare it.  BUT... I hope that you'll prepare it, or one of the variations!
  • Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup butter, melted
    • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1 can (20 ounces) sliced pineapple
    • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    • 3 large eggs, separated
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 9 maraschino cherries
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 375°. In an ungreased 9-in. square baking pan, combine butter and brown sugar. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/3 cup juice. Arrange 9 pineapple slices in a single layer over sugar (refrigerate any remaining slices for another use). Sprinkle pecans over pineapple; set aside. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Blend in vanilla and reserved pineapple juice. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to batter, beating well. In a small bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Spoon into pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before inverting onto serving plate. Place a cherry in the center of each pineapple slice.
  • Notes
    • Peach Upside-Down Cake: Omit the pineapple, pecans and cherries. Drain 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches, reserving 1/3 cup juice. Arrange peaches over brown sugar. Substitute reserved peach juice for the pineapple juice.
    • Cranberry Orange Upside-Down Cake: Omit the pineapple, pecans and cherries. Sprinkle 1 cup halved fresh or frozen cranberries and 1 chopped peeled orange over brown sugar. Substitute 1/3 cup orange juice for the pineapple juice.
