Lazy Upside Down Cake


1 yellow cake mix, prepared as directed
1 can of pineapple rings
1 c of brown sugar
1 cube of butter (1/2 cup)
Directions: Mix cake mix as directed on box. Set aside. Take a glass 9 x 13 pan and melt 1 stick of butter in the bottom in the microwave, sprinkle with 1 c of brown sugar (evenly) and place 1 layer of pineapple across the bottom of the pan (I cut some in half so I could cover the whole pan). Gently pour cake mix over the top. Cook as directed on cake mix or until a knife inserted will pull out cleanly.
Let cool 5 minutes (no more, no less). Run a knife around the edge of the pan to make sure it's free. Set a serving platter upside down on the pan. USING POTHOLDERS... gently flip the pan and platter over so the upside down pan is sitting on the platter.
Leave it alone.
Yes ... you... leave it alone. Gravity will make the cake fall gently & the syrup will follow it.

Remove the pan after about 10 minutes. It should look like the picture above.
