cup packed brown sugar

slices pineapple in juice (from 14-oz can), drained( or fresh pineapple sliced)

maraschino cherries without stems, if desired
1 1/3
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

teaspoon salt

cup milk

egg
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 9-inch square pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over melted butter. Arrange pineapple slices over brown sugar. Place cherry in center of each pineapple slice.
  2. In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.
  3. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over.
