If you don't want to make this cake from scratch, a box of yellow cake, mixed to directions, will do fine!
Put butter and brown sugar in a frying pan and melt until it boils or bubbles. I use a cast iron pan because it's heavy and cooks every evenly. I just move it from stove top straight to the oven.
Place pineapples in butter and sugar mixture. If you're using cherries, pop them in too. Put some smaller pieces of pineapple lined up the sides of the frying pan (standing up on edge). If you're not using a pan that can go into the oven, pour all this into a cake pan and arrange your pineapple accordingly.
Prepare the cake mix batter by combining the ingredients and beating for one minute. Pour batter over pineapples and bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes. Test center with toothpick.
When cake is done, loosen edges with a butter knife. Remove from heat and allow to rest five minutes, then turn it upside down on a serving dish.

This unusual cake is just wonderful for breakfast or brunch. The addition of cornmeal gives the cake a delicious taste and texture, and the layers of pineapple an extra boost.

Can I make a pineapple upside down cake from a box of Tres Leches cake mix?
Of course you can! Cake mix is cake mix. Mix the batter and then prepare your pineapple combination for layering bottom of pan. Pour the prepared batter over pineapples and bake until golden brown. Should be great!!!
