1 cup brown sugar
1 can of pineapple rings
1/2 cup maraschino cherries
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Melt 1/2 cup of unsalted butter in a 9-inch round baking dish, then sprinkle 1 cup of brown sugar evenly over the melted butter. Arrange pineapple rings and maraschino cherries over the brown sugar mixture. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Cream softened butter and sugar together until fluffy, then add eggs one at a time and beat well. Add vanilla extract and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture alternating with the milk, stirring until just combined. Pour the batter over the pineapple and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool for a few minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Add 1/2 cup of shredded coconut to the classic recipe’s batter and bake as directed. Once the cake is cooled, drizzle with a mixture of 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2-3 tbsp of pineapple juice.
Blueberry Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Layer fresh or frozen blueberries over the brown sugar mixture before adding the pineapple rings. Add 1 tsp of lemon zest to the batter and bake as directed.
Rum Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Replace the 1/2 cup of milk in the classic recipe with 1/4 cup of rum and 1/4 cup of milk. Add 1/4 cup of chopped pecans to the brown sugar mixture before adding the pineapple rings.
