Serves: 1


1 pineapple cored and sliced
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1 14 ounce jar maraschino cherries
1 box yellow cake mix


6 whole pecans, optional

Remove outside of pineapple, cut pineapple into thirds. Core the pineapple, then slice the pineapple on its side to make 1/2 inch slices.

Preheat oven to 375° degrees. Place butter in the pan and melt in the oven while preheating. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle brown sugar over melted butter. Arrange whole pineapple slices over the brown sugar in the pan. Place cherries into the centers of the pineapple slices. Cut remaining pineapple slices into half circles, then line the sides of the pan with them standing up. Optional: add whole pecans on bottom.

Bake at 375° degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until cake is a warm golden color and has slightly pulled away from the edges of the pan. Remove from oven, allow to stand for five minutes to set. Turn upside down onto serving dish and serve while still warm.
