Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake
1 box gluten free yellow cake mix, one layer size (I used Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
6 slices canned pineapple rings
6 maraschino cherries, without stems
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray (the sides only) of a 9 inch cake pan with nonstick cook spray and set aside. Prepare cake batter according to package directions (do not bake or pour into pan, just set the bowl of batter aside).
Pour melted butter into the bottom of the prepared cake pan and rotate pan to evenly distribute; sprinkle butter evenly with brown sugar. Arrange pineapple slices on top of brown sugar. Place a maraschino cherry in the hole of each pineapple ring. Pour the prepared cake batter over the pineapple, distributing evenly.
Choose a bake time according to directions on your cake mix package. When cake tests done, remove from oven and let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Yield 8-10 slices
