Melt butter in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet. Spread brown sugar evenly over bottom of skillet. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice; set juice aside. Arrange pineapple slices in a single layer over brown sugar mixture and place a cherry in center of each pineapple ring; set skillet aside. Beat egg yolks at medium speed with an electric mixter until thick and lemon-colored; gradually add granulated sugar, beating well. Heat reserved pineapple juice in a small saucepan over low heat. Gradually add juice to the yolk mixture, beating until well blended. Combine all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder; add dry ingredients to the yolk mixture, beating at low speed until blended.
