Pineapple Upsidedown Cake
This is a great twist of the classic. The top is soooooooo sweet!
1 cup crushed pineapple and juice
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 maraschino cherries, drained, halved
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tbs baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup granulated sugar
3 egg whites
Oven: 400F/ 200C
Drain pineapple and save juice.
Sprinkle brown sugar onto the bottom of 8" (2L) square baking pan
lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread out pineapple evenly over brown sugar.
Place cherries, cut side up, in a pattern in the pan.
In a medium bowl, combine flour powder and salt.
In a large bowl, mix the apple sauce, white sugar, pineapple juice and
Add flour mixture to apple sauce mixture all at once, and stir only
Gently pour batter onto pineapple layer in pan. DO NOT MIX. (That's the
point of an upsidedown cake!)

Cool in pan 10 minutes.
Invert onto serving plate; cool completely. Makes 8 servings.
