Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

– recipe from allrecipes https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/7622/old-fashioned-pineapple-upside-down-cake/
4 eggs

½ cup butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 (20 ounce) can sliced pineapple

10 maraschino cherries, halved

1 cup sifted cake flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1 teaspoon almond extract
Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.
