Not a Pioneer Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

My mother made this in her electric fry pan; I remember  drinking the maraschino cherry juice after she used all the cherries.


  • 6 tbsp shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ¼ cups sifted flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 can sliced pineapple and maraschino cherries – drained

Blend shortening with sugar and egg until creamy.  Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk or fruit juice and mix well.

Preheat electric fry pan at 250 until light blacks out.  Melt 4 tablespoons butter in the pan.  Add ¾ cup brown sugar and blend, spreading evenly at the bottom of pan. Arrange pineapple slices with cherries in center of each on bottom of the pan. Pour batter carefully over the fruit.  Cover and cook for 30 to 35 minutes.  Cool and invert onto a plate.
