Mini Upside Down Pineapple Cakes

I found this recipe (and another one) at  I don't know about you, but I love pineapple.  I think we may end our Thanksgiving meal with these cakes.

1 can (20 oz) Dole Crushed Pineapple
1/3 cup butter (melted)
2/3 cup brown sugar
12 - 13 maraschino cherries (cut in half)
1 pkg yellow cake mix

Drain pineapple, reserve juice.

Stir together melted butter and brown sugar.  Evenly divide sugar mixture into muffin cups sprayed with nonstick cooking spray (or use paper inserts).  Evenly divide drained pineapple over sugar mixture.  Place cherries in center, sliced side up.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, replacing amount of water called for with reserved juice and water.  Evenly pour batter (about 1/4 cup) into muffin cups.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool 5 minutes.  Loosen edges and invert onto cookie sheets.
