How to Make Cranberry Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in 9x13 inch baking dish in 350 degree oven. Sprinkle with sugar, nuts, cranberries and pineapple.
  2. Add water to reserved juice from pineapple, to equal amount of liquid specified on cake mix package. (I have used pineapple juice instead of water to make up the difference). Follow cake instructions on cake package.
