Mom's Pineapple Upside Cake

This cake is a always a hit and so simple to make.

Follow the directions on your favorite boxed yellow cake to prepare the batter.

For the Topping You'll need:
2 round cake pans
About 1/2 cup Walnuts
About 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
A can of Pineapple Rings
Maraschino Cherries
2 Tablespoons of Butter or Smart Balance Spread

Butter or spray the cake pans. Spread the Brown Sugar on the bottom of the pans and then sprinkle on the nuts. Place the Pineapple rings on top in a single layer (as many as will fit comfortably). Place a cherry in the middle of each Pineapple. Now add the batter and cook as directed on the cake mix box.

When cooled, just place a serving plate on top of the cake and flip it over. Viola! Now you have 2 perfectly pretty cakes- one for you and one for someone who has great taste. Or as Mom would say "Someone who deserves it"!
