Hawaiian Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Ingredients2 h 5 m servings 506
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Pour the melted butter into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the butter.
- Arrange 8 pineapple rings in two rows in the baking dish.
- Sprinkle the macadamia nuts, half of the flaked coconut, and 2 chopped pineapple slices between the rows of pineapple rings.
- Place a maraschino cherry in each pineapple ring, then scatter the remaining cherries over the coconut mixture. Set baking dish aside.
- Whisk together the pineapple juice, coconut water, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the mashed banana, yellow cake mix, and remaining flaked coconut until well blended.
- Slowly pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then run a paring knife between the cake and the edge of the pan.
- Cover the cake pan with a large serving plate, and invert it to tip the cake out of the pan and onto the plate with the pineapple slices showing.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
