1 Can Pineapple Slices
1 jar Maraschino cherries
1 cup white sugar
6 tbsp milk or 3 tbsp milk and 3 tbsp juice from the pineapple slices
2 eggs - separated, beat the whites till they are "stiff"
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract, although I have seen her use Almond or "Real" Rum!
6 tsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
Chopped Nuts; Pecans, Walnuts, Whatever you have! 'Bout a handful!
Beat the egg yolks while adding the white sugar and milk/juice. Mix in the flour and the "stash", well, the extract!
Then "fold" very, very carefully into the "whipped" egg whites!
But, before you do all this, you are reading ahead I trust! You need to melt the butter in a 10" cast iron fry pan, add the brown sugar and stir!
When the brown sugar and butter have made a syrup, cut da' heat, arrange the pineapple slices, one cherry in each hole, and the nuts, and then pour in the cake batter.
Bake in a 350 F degree oven for 30 minutes or so, till done. Let cool, heck I don't know, half hour or so. Then flip it on to a serving plate.
If you have real whipped cream to put on top, boy this is Good Eating

Brown the sausage in some oil, add the Holy Trinity, celery, peppers, onion, and sweat those veggies. Add the mushrooms with the liquid, add the rice, stir good and simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Add some water for the rice if more liquid is required. Add some beer or wine if you want, I don't care!
Was pretty good. Next time I have to try some other kind of rice. I used that sticky Chinese kind, and it was a little too starchy for my taste.
