Slow Cooker Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Cooktop Cove 
For pineapple topping:1 slow cooker liner
5 tablespoons butter, melted
¾ cup brown sugar (the darker the brown sugar used, the darker the cake)
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced into rings a little less than ½ inch thick
For cake:
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup butter, melted
1½ cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup plain yogurt
For pineapple topping:
Put a slow cooker liner in a 6-quart slow cooker.
Mix melted butter and brown sugar in a bowl. Evenly spread into the slow cooker liner.
Place four to six pieces of the pineapple rings on top of the sugar mixture.
Cut a few of the pineapple rings as needed to fit around the rings. Avoid layering the pineapple pieces.
For cake:
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer (or whisk if you don't have one) to combine sugar and eggs until thick, fluffy and pale in color.
Add vanilla and melted butter. Mix until fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl, mix together cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add half of the flour mixture into the eggs and mix until fully combined. Add the remaining half and mix well again.
Add the yogurt and stir until fully incorporated.
Pour batter into the slow cooker and spread evenly over the pineapple.
Line the top of the slow cooker with a few paper towels to absorb any excess moisture.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
Insert a knife into the center of the cake to make sure it's done. If knife comes out with batter stuck to it, cook for a little longer, until knife comes out clean after inserting.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from slow cooker by lifting the liner.
Place on a cutting board or plate. Cover cake with another plate facing down.
Carefully flip cake onto the top plate (move the liner out of the way as necessary to make flipping onto plate easier).
Remove liner and serve as is, or top with ice cream or whipped cream!
