GRANDMA'S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE
My gramma used to bake cakes and pies during the Depression and my grampa would sell them door-to-door and on the street corners to support them during that awful time. This is one of my favorites.

OLD FASHIONED PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- In a 10-inch heavy skillet with a heat-resistant handle (I use a cast iron skillet), melt 1/2 cup butter over very low heat. Remove from heat, and sprinkle brown sugar evenly over pan. Arrange pineapple slices to cover bottom of skillet. Distribute cherries around pineapple; set aside.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Separate the eggs into two bowls. In a large bowl, beat egg whites just until soft peaks form. Add granulated sugar gradually, beating well after each addition. Beat until medium-stiff peaks form. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks at high speed until very thick and yellow. With a wire whisk or rubber scraper, using an over-and-under motion, gently fold egg yolks and flour mixture into whites until blended. Fold in 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine and almond extract. Spread batter evenly over pineapple in skillet.
- Bake until surface springs back when gently pressed with fingertip and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Loosen the edges of the cake with table knife. Cool the cake for 5 minutes before inverting onto serving plate.

PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE FROM SCRATCH
This is an old-fashioned upside-down cake recipe from my German grandmother from scratch. She used this same cake batter for many different fruits as an alternative to pineapple. She often used fresh Italian prunes or pitted fresh cherries. My grandparents owned a bakery and this cake was very popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream.

- 1. Using a serrated knife, peel, halve, core and slice the pineapple into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Cut these slices in half.
- 2. Carefully place the sugar in the bottom of the pan. Add the water to the sugar and gently swirl the pan to moisten the sugar; if necessary poke your fingers around the bottom of the pan to make sure all of the sugar mixes with the water. Place the saucepan on high heat and leave the pan undisturbed until it comes to a rolling boil. Once it comes to a boil, continue to let it boil rapidly without moving the pan until it starts to caramelize. This will take 3-4 minutes: you'll see the sugar syrup boil furiously, then as it thickens it will boil more languidly until finally around the edge of the pan you'll see some of the syrup starting to color and darken.
- 3. When you see color in the pan, start to gently swirl in a circular motion so the sugar caramelizes evenly. Continue swirling the pan until the caramel is medium golden brown. Turn the heat down to low and whisk in 6 tablespoons of butter; be careful as the caramel may sputter and steam. Carefully add the pineapple and stir until it is coated with caramel. Don't worry if some of the caramel hardens; it will re-liquify as it continues to cook. Bring it to a boil and then turn heat down to medium-low and let simmer for 8-12 minutes, until the pineapple turns golden brown. The pineapple will release juice and liquefy the caramel. Remove the pineapple from the saucepan with a fork. Continue to boil the remaining liquid on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture is thick and syrupy.
