Gooey Pineapple Upside-Down Dump Cake

I literally threw this dessert together last night!  It took just a few minutes (the longest part of assembling was melting the butter in the microwave).  We had rented a movie from Redbox, and although I wanted to have a warm dessert to enjoy, it was Friday evening, and I had just finished loading the dishwasher!  Time to get a non-messy way!  Here's what I did:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Get out a large pan or glass casserole.  Melt 2 sticks of butter(or margarine)in a glass measuring cup in your microwave.

2.  Mix 1 can of crushed pineapple plus the juice with 2 C brown sugar in the bottom of your casserole.

3.  Sprinkle a box of yellow cake mix over the pineapple mixture.  Finally, pour the melted butter on top and distribute evenly with the back of a large spoon

4.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until the top is golden brown.  Let cool a little and then serve pieces inverted onto dessert plates.  A cherry on top would be pretty, but I didn't have any in the pantry.  This is a very rich dessert and so vanilla ice cream would be nice on the side, too.  We really enjoyed the buttery pineapple taste warm...right from the oven!
