This is a fun recipe to make with the kids and actually easy enough for them to do on their own!  Although this is a recipe for The Pampered Chef stoneware product, Deep Covered Baker, if you have a microwave safe dish you can still use this recipe. :)

I can't wait to eat this Pineapple Upside Down cake!"

1 cup brown sugar
1 can (20 ounces) pineapple slices, undrained
5 maraschino cherries, drained and halved
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 package (18.25 ounces) yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Crumble brown sugar into bottom of Deep Covered Baker. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set aside. Arrange several pineapple slices over brown sugar in Baker. Chop any unused pieces and set aside.
Place a cherry half in center of each pineapple slice. Sprinkle with nuts (optional). Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure 1 1/3 cups liquid. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine cake mix, pineapple juice, reserved chopped pineapple, eggs and oil; whisk until well blended and smooth. Pour over pineapple slices in Baker. Microwave on high, 10-12 minutes, until the top is set.
Allow to stand 5 minutes, then carefully invert onto a serving platter.
Cool slightly; garnish with whipped topping, if desired.
