Pineapple Upside-Down Cake


I love Jiffy boxed mixes. I grew up eating them. There is something wonderfully old fashioned about the packaging and the product. One of my favorite desserts to make is pineapple upside down cake. I use the golden yellow cake mix and add the pineapple juice from the canned pineapple instead of the water. It is simple and not a big deal to make. The only problem is finding the cake mix. I can usually only find the corn bread, which I also love.

1 pkg. “JIFFY” Golden Yellow Cake Mix

Butter an 8″ square pan and sprinkle with brown sugar. Place pineapple over the brown sugar mixture. Set aside. In separate bowl, beat cake mix, egg and the juice for 4 minutes on medium. Pour batter over top of pineapple mixture. Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 1-2 minutes. Invert on serving plate. Cool or serve warm.
