Ingredients

1/4 c
butter, melted (i doubled)
1/2 c
packed brown sugar (i doubled)
1 can(s)
(20 oz) dole pineapple slices,drained
8
marachino cherries
1 pkg
(9 oz) yellow cake mix ( i used a regular sized cake mix )
2 pkg
(8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 pkg
(3.0 oz) lemon gelatin
2
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch spring form pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Note:

If using a regular sized cake mix, use a larger spring form pan, and increase the baking time, at least by 15 minutes. ( I used a regular mix and a 9.5 inch pan ). Keep checking it with a wooden pick in the center till comes out clean.
2
Stir together melted butter and brown sugar in pan. ( I doubled this )
3
Place 8 pineapple slices in sugar mixture. Place cherry in center of each pineapple slice; cut remaining 2 slices of pineapple in half and place decoratively around slice in center of the pan.
4
Prepare cake mix according to the package directions.
5
Pour half cake batter evenly over pineapple.
6
Beat cream cheese, lemon gelatin and eggs in bowl of an electric mixer until smooth.
7
Spread cream cheese mixture gently over cake mix.
8
Pour remaining cake mix over cheese cake in pan.


I wrapped the pan in foil, as it was leaking a bit after 10 minutes of baking.
9
Bake 65 to 75 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. ( if using a regular sized cake mix as I did..add an additional 10 - 15 minutes on the baking time than what the original recipe called for).
10
Cool 5 minutes. Loosen edges and turn out onto serving platter

Enjoy!!

The cake was delicious..I will be making this again for Easter.
