Pineapple Upside Down Cake (Doctored up from a box/quick and easy) step by step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 for dark coated pans, 350 for metal and glass pans.
  2. In a medium pot, melt butter over medium heat..
  3. Add brown sugar to melted butter, stir until mostly dissolved.
  4. Pour into a greased springform pan (that is placed on a baking sheet) I prefer springform vs bundt cake pans, just a preference. You can use whatever baking vessel you like. Baking times will vary, I'll add a picture of the back of the box for reference.
  5. Now, drain the can of pineapple slices, SAVING THE JUICE! This is key. You will use the juice in place of water needed in the batter..
  6. Place rings on top of brown sugar and butter mixture. Add a dabbed dry maraschino cherry to the middle of each ring. Dabbing helps keep the red juice from extra staining to the cake and the rings..
  7. Now, add the 1 cup reserved pineapple juice, the oil and eggs to the cake mix. Beat at low speed for 2 minutes, pour batter over the rings..
  8. Note: if you do not have enough juice to make 1 cup, simply add water to the juice until you reach the 1 cup mark..
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean..
  10. Run a knife between the cake and pan so make sure it's loosened before flipping. Let cake cool for about 5 minutes before flipping. This insures the topping won't run off, but will still release from pan without difficulty..
  11. For easy flipping: place the platter on top of the pan. Firmly hold the platter against pan and invert quickly. It can be scary, but just try to stay calm! :).
  12. Now let cool about 20 minutes before slicing. Serve and enjoy!.
