Ingredient List
For the Cake:
  • One (20 ounce) can pineapple slices in juice
  • One box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients needed to prepare cake
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 10 maraschino cherries without the stems
To make the Cake
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Drain the can of pineapple slices, reserving the juice.

  • Add enough water to the pineapple juice to make 1 cup; set aside.

  • Pour the melted butter into a 13×9-inch pan; sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.

  • Arrange the pineapple slices over the brown sugar and place a cherry inside each pineapple ring; set aside.

  • Prepare the cake mix according to the box instructions, substituting the pineapple juice and water mixture in for the plain water.

  • Pour the batter evenly over the pineapple slices and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick pressed into the center of the cake comes out mostly clean (a few moist crumbs are okay).

  • Let the cake set for 5 minutes, then invert onto a serving tray.

  • Pin: Pineapple
