  • Preheat oven to 350*F. Prepare cake mix as directed on package. Use plain yogurt (or apple sauce) in place of margarine or oil, if desired.
  • Melt margarine in the microwave, about 1 minute (start with 30 seconds). Spray cake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Divide melted margarine between two cake pans. Add brown sugar and stir to blend until sugar dissolves.
  • Add 4 pineapple rings to each pan. Add 1 cherry to the center of each pineapple ring.
  • Add pecan halves throughout pan, in between pineapple rings. Use as little or as much as you like.
  • Bake at 350*F for approximately 35 to 45 minutes. If your oven cooks hot, you'll use less time, if it cooks low, you'll use more time. If your oven cooks unevenly (like mine does), about half way through baking, switch the pans around. The cakes are baked completely when you insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
  • Cool COMPLETELY (1 to 2 hours). When cooled completely, place a platter or plate larger than the cake pan over the cooled cake. SLOWLY turn over and pop cake out onto plate or platter. TA-DAH! You have a beautiful, semi-homemade dessert!


Utensils needed: 8 or 9-inch round cake pans (2) or one 13x9-inch cake pan rubber spatula 1/3 cup measure 1 Tbsp. measure
