I come from a family of cooks. All of my Dad's sisters and brothers were great cooks. My favorite cook is my Aunt. She gave me her awesome made from scratch Pineapple Upside-Down Cake recipe, and I tweeked it to make it "fast and Easy" without losing her cake's flavor. Try my take for fast and easy, and for flavor. This is very traditional. But very good and rich!
Do NOT use a different kind of pineapple, and do not add other stuff like coconut, or more pineapple to the batter. This will not make it better, it will be overkill. Use this recipe ONLY if you want to impress somebody. The stemmed cherries give it a gourmet look on top. Great dish for a bring-a-dish to work, or a family get together. Put it on the table then, stand back and listen to the compliments. Don't worry if someone else brings another to the table...as YOURS will look better!
