Ingredients:  
Topping:
1 can crushed pineapple
1/4 c. soft butter
1/2 c. brown sugar

Cake:

1 c. white sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

1 c. milk
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the topping, put the pineapple, butter and brown sugar in a 10" cast iron skillet. Beat shortening, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Add the egg and beat for a minute more. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients to the batter and then half of the milk. Keep alternating until dry ingredients and cup of milk are gone. Pour the batter into the skillet over the pineapple mixture. Carefully spread this top layer to an even depth all over. Bake on the middle rack at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until a clean toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and be careful, the handle will be hot. Let the cake sit on top of the stove for 5 minutes then run a knife quickly around the edge of the cake to loosen. Invert carefully on a plate large enough to hold the entire cake. Then let it stand for a minute on the plate before carefully lifting the skillet off. Serve warm.

Family Memories from Esther: We got to go to Aunt Lottie’s once a year and stay a week. We caught fleas one time on the farm and Aunt Lottie had us strip off our clothes outside before we came in for dinner.
