Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray with flour.

  • Pour melted butter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly on top. Drain pineapple rings over a measuring cup; reserve juice. Cut rings in half. Alternate placing halved pineapple rings and maraschino cherries around the pan. Set aside.

  • Combine cake mix and pudding mix in a large mixing bowl. Pour enough milk into the reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup of liquid; add to cake and pudding mixture. Pour in vegetable oil. Mix on low speed, adding 1 egg at a time until blended. Increase speed to medium; mix until thoroughly combined and smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour batter over pineapples and cherries in the pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 33 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Cook's Note:

You can use pineapple cake mix instead of yellow.
