Super Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

J. White Harris


This cake is delicious and it’s so easy to make. I got the idea of using yellow cake mixes to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake and the results turned out great, even better than I thought it would be.

How to Make Super Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake


  • 1Put butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet. Turn oven to 350° and put skillet with butter in oven while oven heats.
  • 2While oven is heating, mix cake mixes according to package directions. Set aside.
  • 3When oven reaches 350° and butter is melted remove skillet from oven and mix in the brown sugar.
  • 4Add as many pineapple slices as will fit into the bottom of the skillet. Add a Mauricio cherry to the center of each pineapple slice, I like to add extra cherries in spaces between the pineapple slices.
  • 5Carefully add the cake batter to the skillet, return skillet to 350° oven, and bake for 50 to 60 minutes until a tooth pick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • 6Remove cake from the oven and immediately invert cake on a serving platter.
