Step 1

Heat oven to 350°F. In 9-inch round pan or 8-inch square pan, melt butter in the oven. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over melted butter.

Arrange pineapple slices in single layer over sugar mixture. Sprinkle with pecans. Place a cherry in center of each pineapple slice (cherries with stems can be added after baking).

In a large bowl, beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on low speed for about 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Then, beat on medium speed 4 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately place a heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over cake a few minutes so brown sugar mixture can drizzle over cake; remove pan. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Store loosely covered.

Banana Upside-Down Cake: Omit pineapple, cherries, and pecans. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts over brown sugar mixture in pan. Cut 2 bananas into slices; arrange on brown sugar mixture.

Pear Upside-Down Cake: Substitute 1 large pear, thinly sliced, for the pineapple.

Raspberry Upside-Down Cake: Substitute 1 1/2 cups raspberries for the pineapple, granulated sugar for the brown sugar and sliced almonds for the pecans. Omit cherries. Decrease vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon; add 1/2 teaspoon almond extract.
