Easy Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.

This classic favorite has made a comeback, and it's easier than ever to make when using a cake mix.
Prep Time
15 Minutes
Total Time
1:50 Hr:Mins
12 servings
cup butter or margarine
cup packed brown sugar
can (20 oz) pineapple slices in juice, drained, juice reserved
jar (6 oz) maraschino cherries without stems, drained
box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). In 13x9-inch pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter. Arrange pineapple slices on brown sugar. Place cherry in center of each pineapple slice, and arrange remaining cherries around slices; press gently into brown sugar.
  • 2 Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure 1 cup. Make cake batter as directed on box, substituting pineapple juice mixture for the water. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.

  • 3 Bake 42 to 48 minutes (44 to 53 minutes for dark or nonstick pan) or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately run knife around side of pan to loosen cake. Place heatproof serving plate upside down onto pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over cake 5 minutes so brown sugar topping can drizzle over cake; remove pan. Cool 30 minutes. Serve warm or cool. Store covered in refrigerator.

  • SuperMoist® butter recipe yellow or white cake mix can also be used to make this popular cake. Make batter as directed on box, using 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice and 1/2 cup water instead of water called for on box. For white cake, bake dark or nonstick pan 42 to 48 minutes.

    Serve with sweetened whipped cream or an 8-oz container of frozen (thawed) whipped topping (3 cups) if desired. For 3 cups of sweetened whipped cream, in chilled medium bowl, beat 1 1/2 cups whipping cream and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

    Ernie and Bert Fruit Snack!

    1 clementine, 1 banana, raisins, 2 mini marshmallows, and 1 red fruit roll up.

    This is what we used to make 2 of these. Peel the clementine and save the peel. Separate it in half and put them on each plate. Peel the banana and cut in half. Place those on the plates.

    For Ernie....cut a slit towards the bottom for his mouth. Roll up a fruit roll up tightly and then cut part of that for the nose. Cut a small piece for his tongue. Cut a mini marshmallow in half for his eyes. Cut a small raisin for the pupil on the eyes. Cut more of the raisins in half for his hair. Cut the reserved clementine peel for his ears.

    For Bert...cut the reserved clementine peel for his nose. Cut the banana peel for his ears. Cut a mini marshmallow for his eyes. Cut a small raisin for the pupil on the eyes. Cut a slit for his mouth. Cut a small piece of fruit roll up for his tongue. Use 2 or 3 raisins for his eye brows. Cut raisins in half for his hair.
