10 Transfer the batter into the pan containing the pineapple. Be careful that you don't disturb your fruit design.

11. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

                                                  ( Tips & Warnings: )  

A. Try using fresh instead of canned pineapple, or use a fruit besides cherries; strawberries, blackberries and figs are all tasty possibilities.

B. Garnish the top of the cake with crushed pineapple or a pineapple spread.

C. Allow the cake to cool before attempting to remove it from the pan. If you don't, the cake may stick.
