Pineapple Upside Down Cake

1 box pineapple cake mix
1 can sliced pineapple
juice from the can pineapple
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 maraschino cherries
1/2 a stick of butter
Eggs and oil as recommended on package

*Don't use the water the box asks for instead we are using the leftover pineapple juice if there isn't enough then add water to the juice to make up the difference.

  1. Heat oven to 350°
  2. Make cake mix according to box (except the water part) then set aside.
  3. In a large skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray, heat the butter and the brown sugar over medium heat.
  4. When the sugar starts to bubble up take it off the heat.
  5. Add the 8 pineapple slices around the edges and one in the middle.
  6. Add the 8 cherries in the middle of each pineapple.
  7. Slowly pour the cake mix on top making sure not to move the pineapple or cherries.
  8. Then place pan in oven for about 45 min or until toothpick interested in center comes out clean.
  9. Let cool slightly, using an oven mitt turn over onto plate and let cool.
Best served slightly warm but it's still really good the day after (if there is any left)!
