1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits
(or a can of pineapple chunks, smushed up)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
(or a cup of white sugar with a couple tablespoons of molasses mixed in)
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup walnut halves
(or a couple handfuls of finely diced walnuts, or maybe some pecans, or both, or no nuts at all)
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
and a few drops of neon pink food coloring to turn the cake a nice sunset-orange Wink

Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice...add enough water to the juice to make 1-1/4 cups.
Melt the butter and pour it into a 13x9x2 in. pan.
Sprinkle the butter with the brown sugar, cranberries, and walnuts, then top with the pineapple.
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs, oil, and pineapple juice (and some food coloring, if you're a strangely-colored-food addict)...mix for two minutes.
Pour the cake batter into the pan, then bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (mine definitely took longer, it was really wet and gushy).
Cool for 10 minutes before inverting...or be lazy and just leave it in the pan, flipping each piece before serving.



It's really good, though the pineapple kinda overshadows the cranberry...I may cut back on the pineapple next time, substituting more cranberries and maybe cranberry juice in its place.

The cranberry juice would naturally color your cake batter too.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

I officially dub thee my personal dessert guru.

This looks so yum yum yum and the only combination I can think of that my husband would love more than cheesecake and brownies is pineapple and cranberries.

So, just like last time - this rocks!
