I used this recipe years ago. I use 6 tbsp butter for a richer flavor. Around the pineapple rings I place crushed pineapple that is well drained. A small 8 oz can will do it. I made a 9 x 13 ca...

I only had a 9x11 pan and no cherries but this came out perfect! I just used twice the butter and brown sugar to cover the pan!

Great recipe! It does take at least 40 minutes to bake, give or take. Instead of water in the cake mix, I used the juice from the can of pineapple along with dark rum. Delish!!

This is my go-to recipe for pineapple upside down cake. It always turns out wonderful. Little tip- if you use a regular box of yellow cake mix, the bake time increases by at least 10 minutes.

Works better with pineapple flavored cake mix. Also, substitute water in cake mix with drained pineapple juice. This way gives you a really rich taste of pineapple.

Just how my Mom always made it as a kid. Simple no fuss and tastes great. I do bake according to cake mix directions, so a little longer than the recipe states. Good.
