Pineapple Upside Down Cake

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks in unsweetened pineapple juice
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup unpacked brown sugar

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Pour juice off can of pineapple into 1 cup measuring cup-it should be about 3/4 cup juice. Add water to make 1 cup. In a separate bowl, combine the pineapple juice, oil, and vinegar.
2. Dump pineapple chunks into the bottom of a 12" spring form pan (you could use an 8" x 8" or other sized spring form, just adjust cooking time). Sprinkle with brown sugar.
3. Quickly mix wet ingredients into dry, stirring quickly to combine ingredients well and get out the big lumps. Pour into pan on top of the pineapple/brown sugar mix.
4. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Baking time will depend on pan size) Let cool and loosen sides of cake from pan. Remove side ring and place serving plate on top. Flip cake over onto serving plate and remove pan bottom.
Eat. Yumm.
Source of recipe: This is a modification of Jeanne's White Cake recipe I found here under Wedding Recipes. This cake turned out well so I thought I would share! This makes a pretty sweet, moist cake. You can replace the juice with just water if you are concerned about it being "too sweet".

SO HOW'D IT GO?

:) I made this and added a a can of pears (drained). I found its always better to add a little extra fruit to these kinds of recipes. It was absolutely delicious. My old fashioned grandmother couldn't believe there were no eggs in it.

yeah, i kinda had a problem fitting a whole pineapple ring in the bottom of the cup...so i just tore the pineapple in quarters and put one quarter of a pineapple ring+ a cherry...

They were SUPER delicious.. plus easy to eat!
