Who says cake has to take a while to bake? The microwave turns out a quick and spectacular version of this traditional thermal oven recipe!

What You'll Need

  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple rings, drained
  • 7 to 10 maraschino cherries
  • 1 (15.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the bottom of a microwave-safe 10-inch round cake pan or 9" x 13" baking dish; dot with butter. Microwave at 100% power for 1-1/2 minutes. Stir to distribute the mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan; top with pineapple rings arranged in a single layer then place a cherry in each ring.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs. Beat until well mixed. Spoon the batter into the pan and microwave at 70% power for 14 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. Let the cake stand for about 5 minutes. Loosen gently with a knife and invert onto a platter. Serve warm, or allow to cool completely before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I HIGHLY recommend using Pineapple Sage flowers instead of Maraschino cherries. Fake cherries add a sickly sweetness to an already-sweet dish, whereas Pineapple Sage flowers add the same pop of color with an elevated flavor.

haven't tried it yet but it sound good
