Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Recipe by mightyro_cooking4u

From the side of the Duncan Hines cake mix box. As I stated earlier, I am not a baker, so I rely on Mr. Hines, Mrs. Crocker and others to help me.

This worked so wonderfully - 5 stars or more. I had to use diced pineapple and left out the cherries but the dessert was so yummy with cream and moist and was a huge success. I will do this again, probably next week !!
