Step 1

1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch cake pan or spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray. If using a spring form pan, wrap foil around the bottom.

2 Stir together melted butter and brown sugar in pan. Place 7 or 8 pineapple slices in sugar mixture. Place cherry in center of each pineapple slice; cut remaining 2 slices of pineapple in half and place decoratively around slice in center of the pan.

3 Prepare cake mix according to the package directions (if using cake mix larger than 9 oz., a 10 or 12-inch pan is recommended). Pour half cake batter evenly over pineapple. Beat cream cheese, lemon gelatin and eggs in bowl of an electric mixer until smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture gently over cake mix. Pour remaining cake mix over cheese cake in pan.
