It turned out superbly! The recipe for the cake is Betty Crackpot's Dinette Cake, and you can find that recipe here. For the upside down part of the cake, i.e. the bottom, mix together 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar. Spread evenly over the bottom of the cake pan. Arrange pineapple slices on top, make the cake batter, then spread it evenly over the pineapple. I know this is supposed to have maraschino cherries in it, but honestly, it didn't need them (and they're not in my budget). Here is the cake!

This was TO.DIE.FOR. In fact, it's one of the best things I think I've ever baked!
I loved it! And I ate 3/4 of it in four days, I'm slightly sheepish to admit. I gave the other quarter to a friend.
I have in the freezer a bag of wild blackberries. I think I'll make a blackberry upside down cake next!
