Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

A few weeks, my husband and I went to a Lifetime Cookware Party. It was really fun. I'd love me some of those pots and pans if it didn't mean taking out a second mortgage on our house! So, for dessert, the guy made pineapple upside down cake. It was so yummy. Although mine sadly was not prepared in a lifetime skillet on the stove top, it still is yummy regardless.

9 oz yellow cake mix including necessary ingredients to prepare it (we used Jiffy)
1 c brown sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
14.5 oz pineapple rings
maraschino cherries (optional)-we did not use

1)prepare cake mix as directed EXCEPT substitute pineapple juice for water. Set aside

2)melt butter and sugar & pour into greased 10 inch round cake pan

3) add pineapple rings & cherries to bottom of pan

4) pour cake mix over pineapple

5) Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. (ours took 45 minutes) Stand 5 minutes and invert onto plate.


  1. delicious! and simple [especially when the wife prepares it instead of me :)] We kicked it up a notch by serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream while the cake was still warm.

  2. Vanilla ice cream does sound like a necessary addition. Thanks for the tip.
