Pineapple and maraschino cherries help form the delicious "topping" on this upside-down cake.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Melt 1/4 cup butter in 11x7-inch ungreased glass baking dish in oven. Stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Arrange 8 pineapple slices on top. Place cherry half in center of each pineapple slice, if desired.
Combine 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup butter in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Continue beating, adding eggs 1 at a time, until well mixed. Stir in vanilla. Gradually add flour, baking powder and salt alternately with milk, beating at low speed and scraping bowl often after each addition.
Gently spread batter over pineapple. Bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen sides of cake from pan by running knife around inside of pan. Invert cake onto serving platter; let stand 5 minutes. Remove pan. Cool completely.
*Substitute 1 (16-ounce) can peach or pear slices, well drained.

I made this recipe because I accidentally bought crushed pineapples instead a chunks for my fruit salad. I used a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple for this recipe. Also, I used cake flour (for a lighter, fluffy cake, due to less protein in cake flour as oppose to all purpose flour) and added a splash of the pineapple juice (I am honestly not sure if this even made a difference to the flavor). I liked this recipe, and would have rated it a perfect five stars, but I baked the cake for 40 minutes, which I feel made it a little dry. I am extremely critical on my baking, and would suggest the 30-35 minute bake time. Great recipe, and will make again. Only next time on purpose. Thank you, Land O'Lakes for this recipe. Cheers from Texas :)
Easy and delicious. I am making this for my boyfriend for his birthday cake. You can't go wrong with this recipe!

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
