Here's another DCB microwave recipe... sounds good, can't wait to try it!


Pineapple Upside-Down Cake for the Deep Covered Baker
From Yvonne Deatherage

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 can (20 oz) pineapple slices
Maraschino cherries
1/2 cup pecans (we will chop during the show)
1 package Supreme Pineapple Supreme Cake Mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
optional: 1 container thawed, frozen whipped topping

Place 1 stick butter (1/2 cup) in the deep covered baker, place in microwave for about a minute to melt butter.

Add 1 cup brown sugar (packed in easy adjustable measuring cup) to the butter in the baker and stir til blended using small bamboo spoon.

Drain 1 (20 oz)can pineapple, retain the juice for the cake mix.

Arrange pineapple slices over the sugar mixture. I placed them all around the outside and two in the center which overlapped the ones on the sides..Then place two maraschino cherries, drained in center of pineapple slices or place one cut in half-putting both halves in the center.

Then using food chopper, chop 1/2 cup of pecans and then pour these over pineapple slices.

Add enough water to pineapple juice to make 1 1/3 third cups of liquid using the easy read measuring cup in you use 1 can of pineapple. (or if you use 2 cans like I sometimes do, I use all pineapple juice)

Combine Pineapple Supreme Cake Mix, liquid in easy read measuring cup, 3 eggs, and 1/3 oil using same easy read measuring cup in Classic batter bowl or medium stainless mixing bowl; whisk with small stainless steel whiskuntil well blended and smooth. Pour over fruit mixture in deep covered baker.

Bake in microwave 15 minutes (microwaves varies--so you might need less time)

Cool 5 minutes.

Then invert onto large, heat-safe serving plate. I use the oval dots platter using the oven pads. Once inverted, there is sometimes sugar/butter mixture left in bottom of baker, I use the skinny scraper or the small mix 'n scraper to rub the left over mixture around the outer edging of the cake.

optional: when cooled, pipe whipped topping around the edge of the cake usingthe easy accent decorator.Yields 12 servings or 24 sample slices

I used the bread knife cutting the cake in half lengthwise--the oval shape-- then I cut slices so the cake goes further at shows. Serve with slice 'n serve or mini serving spatula

Wow - does that ever sound amazing!!
I was always sad that I couldn't make the Skillet Upside Down Cake, as I don't have the skillet yet, but this sounds superb!

Thanks so much!!!

Heidi - I haven't tried this recipe, but with the chocolate pb dump cake, you make it with the lid off, so that's the way I'd try this one.

I do want to make this one too!

I never did hear back, but I think that Becky is right, that's the way I'd try it too. Let me know how it turns out! I keep meaning to make this and about 20 other things, but I keep putting them off, mainly because I know that I'll eat too mcuh!

you have to let us know how it is...

One thing that I wondered about is that the directions say 15 minutes, but the other cakes are around 12 minutes. I think I would check at 12 minutes. 3 extra minutes in a microwave can mean the difference between cake and hockey puck!

I would totally use a fresh pineapple and juice. Now that I've started eating fresh pineapple I don't even like the canned kind. My DD went to a friends b-day party this summer and they served fruit kabobs with strawberries, melon and canned pineapple tidbits and my daughter was like "What is this?" and the mom said, "that's pineapple" and Gracelyn said, "Um, no it's not" I had to explain that we usually have fresh pineapple and she's not used the canned kind. It was kind of funny! But I have subbed fresh for canned in other upside down cake recipes and it always makes it better, so I'm sure this would too. And I agree with checking the time at 12 minutes too...
