Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Find it on Pinterest
Cooks Note: My Dad LOVES Pineapple Upside Down Cake, you might even call him an expert on the subject. So when I saw this on Pinterest and my parents were coming for dinner, it was a no brainer. This was VERY simple to make and was super tasty. I will make it again this Summer and is great for BBQ's. In the instructions it did not say how long to cook it for, so I assumed it would be for however long the cake needed to cook, wrong. It cooked for almost an hour, so watch it. Hope you like it as much as my Dad did, enjoy!
  • 1 Can Pineapple Slices
  • 2/3 Cup Butter (melted)
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 Jar Maraschino Cherries
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans (optional)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
  1. Mix melted butter, pecans and brown sugar in a bowl
  2. Line Skillet with pineapple slice halves all the way around and cover the bottom with whole pineapple slices (but not overlapping)
  3. Pour brown sugar mixture over pineapple slices
  4. Place a cherry in the middle of the slices laying flat in the skillet
  5. Prepare cake mix in separate bowl according to directions
  6. Pour over pineapple slices
  7. Place skillet directly in oven @325 for 40min to an hour
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes in skillet

  10. Place a plate upside on top of the skillet and carefully flip the skillet over to let the cake fall out of the pan onto the plate and flip back over quickly
