Pineapple Upside Down Cake


Traditional pineapple with cherries in the middle, with the butter and brown sugar that forms the lovely topping. This is the best Pineapple Upside Down cake I ever tasted. I've had many compliments on it.

Step 1

Heat oven to 350°F.

Sprinkle brown sugar in bottom of pan. Drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over the brown sugar. Place the pineapple slices in each of the indentations of a pineapple upside down cake pan, or fit them nicely in the bottom of a large rectangle pan. Place 1 cherry in the center of each pineapple slice. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Blend on low speed for 1 minute, scraping bowl often. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes scraping bowl occasionally. Pour the batter over the pineapple.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately turn pan upside down onto serving plate.
