Tackling Upside Down Cake

It's time for Tackle It Tuesday with 5 Minutes for Mom . This weekend, I made my first pineapple upside-down cake. It is a recipe from my husband's Aunt Kathy and it is what my BiL wanted for his birthday. So, I obliged and now, I am sharing it with you. Enjoy:-)

Kathy's Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

1 yellow cake mix
1 20 oz can pineapple rings
1 cup brown sugar
1 sticks butter
12 maraschino cherries

1. Grease sides only of a 9X13 baking dish. Set aside.

2. Drain pineapple but save the juice.

3. Combine butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Cook until thoroughly combined but not burnt. Pour into the bottom of the baking pan. Place pineapple over the brown sugar mixture and top each ring with a maraschino cherry.

4. Prepare the cake mix according to the box but use the saved pineapple juice for part of the water that is required. Pour mix carefully over the pineapple. Bake according to the box instructions.

5. When the cake is done, turn out onto a platter and enjoy:-)

That looks SO yummy! Pineapple Upside Cake is a Thanksgiving tradition in my husband's family - he and his dad eat the edges where the butter and brown sugar have gathered and me and my mother-in-law eat the rest!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is one of my favorite cakes. As I am the only one who eats pineapple I don't make it often. But it is so worth it.
