It’s Friday – I Need Dessert


It has been one crazy week around this home front! Besides working and watering new flowers in the evening I have done nothing. I haven’t had time. I get home from work, eat whatever I can get my hands on, water my new flowers and look at the clock, BAM 8:00 PM, time for bed!

After a week like that a girls gotta indulge in something sweet so here’s a recipe for one of my favorite go-to dessert recipes….

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Here’s what you need:

- 1/4 cup butter or margarine

- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar

- Pineapple slices from can – drained

- Maraschino cherries without stems, if desired

- 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

- 1 cup white sugar

- 1/3 cup shortening

- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 3/4 cup milk

- 1 egg

3. Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick is inserted in centre and comes out clean. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave the pan over the cake for a few so the brown sugar/butter mixture can drizzle over cake. Remove the pan and serve warm. Store cake loosely covered and ENJOY! :-)
