HOW TO MAKE GRANDMA’S PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.

Step 4: In a bowl, add the sugar and eggs and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Step 5: Alternately fold in 3 batches the flour mixture and pineapple juice into the egg mixture. Start and end with the flour mixture.
Step 6: Pour this over the pineapple slices.
Step 7: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 8: Remove from the oven and let the cake cool for at least 5 minutes before carefully inverting it onto a serving plate.
