Gentle Friends...I made at the request of the "Hag Claw" a Pineapple Upside Down Cake - for a coworkers Birthday - it's a totally easy recipe - and I've made it quite a few time before......
..... but just in case you've missed it and want to make one on your own....it starts off with a yellow cake mix...... melt 1/4 cup of butter in a 9 x 13 pan in a preheating 325 degree oven until melted but not browned. Sprinkle a cup of dark brown sugar over melted butter. Drain a 20 oz can of sliced pineapple, reserving the juice, arrange the slices in a single layer on top of the brown sugar - then place cherries in holes. Prepare the cake mix according to the package substituting the reserved pineapple juice for the water. Pour over the pineapple slices - bake in preheated oven for about 40 - 45 minutes or until a cake taster comes out clean. Take out of the oven let cool about 15 minutes - then flip onto a tray or serving board and let the pan stay on top for another 5 minutes before removing. Allow to cool for another 30 or so minutes - cut an serve. I found that cooking this cake in a 325 and not a 350 oven for a few extra minutes makes a big difference to the finished cake.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks again for stopping by do stop again!!
