16 ounce can sliced pineapple

cup brown sugar

1/3 cup butter

1 package yellow cake mix

maraschino cherries (optional)

2 eggs


Preheat Dutch oven and spray with no-stick. Place 1/3 cup butter and cup brown sugar in oven. Heat to melt butter. Place pineapple slices (save pineapple juice) in the butter and place halved cherries in each pineapple center with round side down, and sugar mixture. (If the oven is too hot the sugar, butter and pineapple will burn).

Mix yellow cake mix as directed on package using pineapple juice as part of your liquid. Pour batter over pineapple. Cover oven and place in over 12 coals. Place 9 coals on the lid. Bake, covered for 30 to 40 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then invert on foil covered cardboard.
