Ingredients

  • 1 pkg yellow, pineapple or butter cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 can (lb, 4 oz) pineapple slices -- reserve the juice
  • maraschino cherry halves

Directions

  • Melt butter in a 13x9x2-inch pan. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly in pan. Arrange drained pineapple slices (reserve the juice!!) and maraschino cherry halves on the sugar mixture.
  • Mix cake as directed on the box. For example: 1 1/3 cup liquid (reserved pineapple juice plus water to equal 1 1/3 cup) and 2 eggs. Beat as directed. Pour batter over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes, until tests done with a toothpick. Let stand 5 minutes for topping to begin to set. Then turn upside down onto a large platter or cookie sheet.

Notes

The cake box may say ‘do not substitute fruit juice for water’ but it is okay to do it.
