It’s also a great way to use up any leftover pineapple you have in the house.

How To Prepare Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Preparation time for this cake is only 9 minutes, and it takes just 2 hours to cook in the slow cooker. You’ll need some basic ingredients, which include non-stick cooking spray, salted butter, brown sugar, a can of pineapple rings, maraschino cherries, yellow cake mix, oil, pineapple juice, eggs, and vanilla extract.

To start, heavily spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray, or you can rub it down with butter or oil. Next, add the melted butter to the bottom of the slow cooker and sprinkle over the brown sugar. Mix lightly with a spoon and spread out evenly over the bottom of your slow cooker. Then, lay down the pineapple rings on top of the brown sugar mixture. Add a cherry in the middle of each pineapple.

In a medium-sized bowl, add the cake mix, 1 cup of pineapple juice, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix with a spoon until combined. Do not overmix or try to remove the lumps. Pour the batter over the pineapple in the slow cooker. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. If your slow cooker cooks hot, it may be a little less time. You know your cake is done when the cake is set in the center.

Remove the insert to a cooling rack when the cake is done. Let cool for about 20 minutes before attempting to turn over onto a platter or cutting board. Flipping the cake onto a platter or cutting board works best with two people if possible.
