Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Recipe
1 yellow cake mix
Ingredients to bake the cake
1/4 C unsalted butter, room temp
1 C packed light brown sugar
1 can pineapple slices in juice, reserve juice
10 bing cherries, pitted
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a 10 inch Springform round pan, melt butter in oven.
-Sprinkle brown sugar over the melted butter. Place sliced pineapple on top of the brown sugar. Add cherries.
-Add water to the pineapple juice to equal 1 cup.
-Add cake mix to a mixing bowl, following directions EXCEPT replace the amount of water the mix requires with the combination of the water and juice.
-Pour batter over the brown sugar mixture in the cake pan.
-Bake at 350 degrees for 40-48 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
-Remove from oven, run a knife around the sides of the pan. Loosen the catch on the cake pan and gently lift it away from the cake. Place a plate on top of the cake and flip it over so the top of the cake is the pineapple, cherries and brown sugar. Allow the cake to cool for about 2 minutes then remove the cake pan base so the brown sugar sauce can run down the sides of the cake.
