How to make it

  • In an 8x8 inch baking pan, over low heat, melt the margarine. Remove from the heat and stir in the brown sugar.
  • Place the pineapple slices on the sugar mixture, centering the slices closely in the center of the pan so all the pieces are touching.
  • Place a cherry half in the center of each pineapple slice.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another medium bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the margarine and granulated sugar until blended, about 1 minute.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until smooth, about 30 seconds. The batter will be thin.
  • Add the flour mixture to the batter in thirds, alternating with milk, blending until smooth, 2 minutes.
  • Spoon the batter on top of the pineapple mixture and spread evenly.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 25-35 minutes.
  • Unmold by sliding a thin knife around the cake, pressing against the pan. Invert onto a cake plate.
  • Serve warm.

    " It was good "
    Moalta ate it and said...
    My god. Am I the first person to use this recipe in 12 years? First, I guess 350F is the baking temp.; not included in the recipe. Second 25 to 35 is a large range for the baking time but 30 minutes worked for me. The recipe worked, tastes good, and I am happy to find a recipe using little sugar. (I used butter instead of margarine for the brown sugar sauce under the pineapple.)

    My boyfriend of 6 yrs. is diabetic, and we live in a rural area, so I can't just find sugar-free and low sugar foods anywhere, he seems to like it! :)
