Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Looking for an easy, fresh and fruity cake to make?  Look no further!  Great citrus flavor and simple ingredients make this an ideal cake to make for a party…they’ll think you spent hours slaving over it!!!

 

Ingredients:

a box of yellow cake mix (and the ingredients needed to make that cake)

1/4 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 – 20 oz can of pineapple rings – drained

1 jar of maraschino cherries – drained

 

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Next, spray a 9×11 baking pan with cooking spray. Layer the bottom of the pan with slices of butter.  Coat with brown sugar.  Place in oven just long enough for the butter to melt and be able to mix with the sugar.  Remove from oven.

After the butter and brown sugar has been mix to create a thick bottom glaze, arrange the pineapple rings in a single layer along the bottom.  Place a cherry in the middle of each pineapple.

Prepare the yellow cake mix according to the instructions on the box.

Pour the cake batter over top of the pineapples and cherries.

Bake in the oven for around 45 minutes, or until cake is cooked through and a toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from oven and immediately flip the cake upside down onto your serving dish (this prevents the cake from sticking to the pan as it cools).   Allow the cake to cool on the serving dish.  Each pineapple slice is one serving of cake, so this cake serves 12!

Any leftover servings can be easily wrapped and frozen for a homemade treat another day!
