Directions for Pineapple Upside Down Cake With Cake Mix

Melt Butter in Cast Iron Skillet (We used a #10 anything smaller is too small)

Sprinkle Brown Sugar evenly over butter

Drain juice from pineapples and place sliced pineapples around pan. You can fill in gaps with pieces if you wish. (Add Cherries to center of pineapples if you use them)

Mix Cake mix according to instructions and pour over pineapples in skillet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 -45 minutes.


Ours started getting brown before it was done so we removed it and put aluminum foil over it for the last 10 minutes and we liked the texture and flavor very much!

If you haven’t tried this, you should! Easy to make and easy to clean up. Those of you who have experience in cooking with cast iron know the ease of cleaning a good seasoned skillet. There just really isn’t anything better to cook in that a good seasoned cast iron piece!

We use our cast iron skillets to fry, bake, broil, etc! They are great.
