Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This cake is wonderful for picnic and BBQ's.  We made is super easy by using a yellow cake mix!
1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup STAR Extra Light Oil
1 1/3 cups water
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/4-1/2 cup butter
1 (20 ounce) can sliced pineapple
1 (8 ounce) jar STAR maraschino cherries

Follow instructions on cake box for making an oblong single layer cake.  Prepare cake batter and set aside.  Cut up butter in small pieces and place all over the bottom of the oblong pan specified on cake box.  Sprinkle brown sugar generously over the butter. Place pan on the stove (or in the oven) and heat slowly until butter and sugar melt to a liquid then remove from heat. Evenly space the pineapple slices around the bottom of pan in the heated sugar and butter. Place the cherries between the pineapple slices. Pour cake batter on top of the pineapple/cherry/nut mixture. Place in oven and bake as directed on cake box. As soon as cake is done place a plate over the cake and turn upside down and carefully remove pan.
WARNING!  If you wait too long the sugar will harden and be difficult to remove.
