This Pineapple Upside Down Cake is really scrupulous. It is a wonderful cake to serve at a brunch, shower or after dinner for guests. You will not want just one slice of cake.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the two 9″ cake pans with non-stick cooking spray with flour and set aside. Mix the cake mix according to the directions on the cake box and set aside
Over low heat, combine butter, brown sugar and the juice for the can of Pineapple rings. Cook over low heat until all ingredients have dissolved into a syrup. Turn off the burner.
There will not be enough pineapple rings for both pans. With the extra pineapple rings, dice them into tidbits and spread into the second pan. Take the remainder half of syrup and pour into the second pan.
The cake batter will also be divided into the two cake pans. Now carefully pour the cake batter in a circular motion into the first pan. Let it level out. You are pouring to cover the area. It needs to be done slowly so the syrup stays on the bottom.
Place both pans in the oven side by side but not touching. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack. I let mine sit on the gas burner to cool. Make sure your burner is off.
Only allow the cakes to cool for about 10 minutes. You will want to flip them on to a plate while still warm or you will not get them out of the pans. The pan should be cool to touch the sides.
