Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350 (325 F for dark and nonstick pan). In 13x9-inch pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter. Arrange pineapple slices on brown sugar. Place a 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 cups. Make cake batter as directed on box, substituting pineapple juice mixture for the water. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.

3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes (42 to 48 minutes for dark or nonstick pan) or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately run a knife around side of the pan to loosen cake. Place heatproof serving plate upside down on to 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.

Personal Notes:
Super Moist butter recipe yellow or white cake mix can also be used to make this popular cake. Make cake batter as directed on box, using reserved pineapple juice as part of the total water measurement.

Special Touch: 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 a 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.
