Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease sides of a 9 by 3-inch round baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
For topping: Beat the melted butter and brown sugar together in a small bowl. Spread mix over the bottom of prepared baking pan. Arrange 6 pineapple slices around the edge of the pan and 1 in the middle. Place a cherry in the middle of each ring, and the rest between slices at the edges.
For the Cake: Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and cloves in a large bowl. In another large bowl, beat together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs 1at a time. Using a spatula, alternately fold in the flour mixture and the heavy cream and pineapple juice until blended. Spread batter over the pineapple slices and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then run a metal spatula around the edge to loosen cake, invert a serving plate over the cake pan, and turn cake and plate over together. Remove cake from the pan, and serve the cake warm, with whipped cream.
