RECIPE: Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

My husband is not a fan of cherries so I make this for him without the cherries in the center of the pineapples.  But if I'm going to a gathering or get-together, I'll include the cherries.  They make the top so pretty!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 can pineapple slices
5 maraschino cherries, drained & halved (optional)
1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Melt butter in Cast Iron Skillet over low heat on stove top.  Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar until well blended.  Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set aside.  Arrange pineapple slices over brown sugar in skillet.  Place a cherry half in the center of each pineapple slice.  Add enough water to pineapple juice to measure 1-1/3 cup liquid.  In large bowl, combine cake mix, pineapple juice, eggs and oil.  Stir until well blended. and smooth.  Pour over pineapples and cherries in the skillet.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted come out clean.  Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes.  Carefully loosen edges of cake and invert onto a large serving plate.  Cool slightly and enjoy!
