Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Our Momma has had a craving for Pineapple upside down cake!  So when some of the fam came to dinner a few weeks ago, she went about business in my kitchen making one!  It turned out superb and so beyond easy to make!!!!

Here's the breakdown:
1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9-10 inch cake pan with non stick cooking spray.
2.  Turn your grill on medium heat and grill 5-6 pineapple rings for a few minutes per side to get those nice grill marks!  You can use fresh or canned pineapple!  The grilling is optional!
3.  Take a boxed yellow cake mix and follow the directions on the back, except lowering the oil to 2 tablespoons and adding a 3.3 oz box of white chocolate pudding.
4.  Place your grilled pineapple rings around the bottom of your prepared cake pan and sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar in and around the pineapple rings!
5.  Pour the cake batter in the pan and into the oven for 30-40 minutes until the center of the cake is set!
6.  Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes.  Then carefully turn out on a cake plate or cake stand, slice and enjoy!

I don't know if grilling the pineapple first is customary, but if not, it should be! Yum!
