Why I Love This Recipe

The cast iron pan makes an ordinary pineapple upside down cake extra special and the jewel is in the topping! Such sweetness!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 can sliced pineapple

1 small jar maraschino cherries

1 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons butter

1 box mix of pineapple upside down cake

3 large eggs

1 cup water

1/3 cup vegetable oil


Preheat oven 325 degrees

Place pan in the oven while it is preheating

In a small sauce pan put brown sugar, butter and 1/2 cup of juice from the canned pineapple slices

Mix gently

Heat just until the butter is melted

Put the pineapple slices on the side for now

Prepare cake mix according to instructions

Remove pan from oven when it is good and hot

Be Careful!

Pour the sugar mixture in the pan

Arrange pineapple slices in the pan- be as creative as you like

Next use the cherries to decorate the pineapple slices

Pour cake batter on top

Put in the oven for 30 minutes (when toothpick inserted comes out clean)

Let cake set for a minute or two

Flip on serving tray

When you flip Be Careful

Let the pan sit for a minute until it releases

It will be slightly gooey and drippy

Remember hot sugar is Hot! Be careful!
