How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter two 9 inch round cake pans. Sprinkle the bottom of each pan with 1/4 cup (or more-for more good gooey stuff) of brown sugar.
  • In one of the pans, sprinkle coconut over the brown sugar. Lay pineapple rings in a single layer on top of coconut. Place a cherry in the center of each ring. In the other pan, spread the drained crushed pineapple.
  • Mix the cake as directed on package, but substitute reserved pineapple juice in place of water. Divide batter between the 2 pans.
  • Remember which pan has the pineapple rings in it.
  • Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cool in pans for 20 minutes.
  • While the bottoms of the cake pans are still warm to the touch, invert the layer with the crushed pineapple out onto a serving dish, then gently invert the layer with the pineapple rings on top of it.

    I changed up the cake mix to lemon, didnt have white or yellow cake mix at our grocery.

    I deviated from the recipe yet still heavenly.

    Have all the ingredients as I am planning to make a pineapple upside down cake this weekend. Found this recipe and now this is my plan! Sounds great! I'm going to be using a Pineapple Supreme cake mix since that is what I have. Thanks so much for posting this one! :)
