This recipe makes two pie pans or can be baked in a rectangle dish, because the cake will double in amount when baking. If the dish is too small, it will spill over. Prepare the pan by layering the pineapple. Place pieces of sliced butter over the pineapple then sprinkle the brown sugar. The amount of brown sugar can be reduced according to taste. Beat eggs until fluffy and creamy, add sugar, and beat until it dissolves. Add vanilla and beat. Mix the flour with baking powder, then add it to the mixture and beat. This is a sponge cake, so don't over-mix. Bake at 400 degrees in a preheated oven for about 1 hour, until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If making half the recipe, baking time is reduced to about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in the pan, then turn the cake onto a serving dish. Cool completely, keep in the fridge, and serve cool or serve warm with ice cream.
