I had made yesterday to take to the family 4th of July bbq/pool party. Its summery, right?! I didn't feel like pulling out the cast iron skillet and made them in 2 9" round tins. Worked like a charm! I ended up using the Dunkin Heinz Butter cake mix and it turned out wonderful. The few tweaks made - 9" round cake tins, rubbed with a little butter. Layered as follows: brown sugar, pineapple rings, cherry in each pineapple ring, 1/8 - 1/4 cup coconut flakes (divided between the 2 tins). I was planning on using the pineapple juice in place of the water for the cake mix, but I spaced on it. I did add a few tablespoons to the mix afterwards anyway. I think it helped the cake turn out extra moist, but not soggy. Plus, it gave it that extra punch of pineapple flavor. Baked per the cake mix directions, adding about 5-10 extra minutes on the cook time. When done baking, I let it cool for a few minutes and then turned it out onto a clear glass serving platter. Looked perfect and tasted fantastic!! I'll be making another set this weekend for another pool party bbq! :)
