This is one cake I have always looked up with awe:) am not a daring baker........I have this weird habit of pushing certain recipes for a later day and some I just bake with a rush of blood.This is one such example. Have seen a lot of pics but never tasted it......so here is my first attempt - my way :) Love pineapple...and the simplicity of this cake.
First,mix half a stick of butter with 3/4 cup of brown sugar and coat the flour dusted pan evenly.Place the pineapple slices.Wish I had some cherries to place in the center - ok ..........next time :)
Separate 3 eggs and add the yolks to the butter sugar mixture along with a teaspoon of Vanilla essence.
Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry.
Now, add flour to the butter mixture 1/4 cup at a time ,fold in egg whites in between.
Kids wanted it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream - it sure tasted good !!!
