OLD FASHION PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

1 #2 can of sliced pineapple
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
Maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Drain the pineapple, reserving 3/4 cup of the syrup.

In a mixer bowl, cream the sugar and shortening together; add the eggs and beat in.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the creamed mixture alternately with the reserved 3/4 cup of the pineapple syrup. Mix together well. Melt the butter in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Stir the brown sugar into the butter and spread out evenly over the bottom of the pan. Arrange the pineapple slices over the buttery mixture. Place a maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple ring. Pour the batter evenly over the pineapple slices.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
