• 1 box of yellow cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 4 eggs 
  • Canned pineapple rings in HEAVY syrup
  • 2 T. of vanilla
  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1 1/2 handfuls of brown sugar
  • 1/2 can of pineapple rings


1 _ Melt and cool butter.

2 _ Mix butter, heavy syrup (from pineapple can), vanilla, eggs together. Fold in cake mix. Stir for a bit. Set aside.

3 _ I use a springform pan BC it is fancy but you can use anything, really.

4 _ So, spray the heck out of the pan. Toss in brown sugar (a handful plus or so)

5 _ Place pineapple so they are touching but not overlapping.

6 _ Slice up some butter and haphazardly toss it wherever, over pineapple.

7 _ Toss in about a half handful of brown sugar (over pineapple. This results in caramelization)

8 _ Pour batter over pineapple/brown sugar/ butter

9 _ 325 F if dark pan

10 _ 350 if glass

11 _ Cook as long as required per box.

12 _ When done, let sit for 10 min or so. Then, take a knife around the edges of the pan and flip over so you see the pineapple.

13 _ Sorry but granny never used exact measurements so I don't either.

**If you want to be fancy, place a candied cherry in the center of each pineapple slice.
