Drain the pineapple, reserving 2 Tbls of the juice. Melt the butter in a heavy 10-inch ovenproof skillet. Stir in the brown sugar and reserved pineapple syrup, blending well. Remove from the heat. Arrange the pineapple slices in the sugar mixture in a balanced arrangement. Place a maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple slice. Combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the milk and oil then beat, with an electric mixer set on high speed, for 2 minutes. Add the egg, lemon rind, lemon juice and vanilla extract and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Carefully pour the batter over the pineapple in the skillet, spreading evenly. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the cake tests done. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a serving plate upside down on the top of the skillet and invert the skillet and plate. Serve this cake warm. VARIATION: For Peach Upside-Down Cake, use a can of peach halves instead of the pineapple slices and proceed as above.
