Pineapple Upside-down cake

This is my birthday cake. I love love love it. I even bought a pan made specifically for it with little grooves for pineapple and cherries on the bottom. Yeah, I'm a bit obsessed with it. :)

You don't have to use the pan above - just use a regular 13x9 inch casserole dish. :)
Pineapple Upside-down cake:
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
1 (20oz) can sliced pineapple in juice, drained
6 maraschino cherries (I like to put a LOT more than 6 - see picture below)
2 cups flour
1 ½ cup sugar
½ cup butter, softened
1 ¼ cups milk
2 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
2 eggs
½ tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350°. Sprinkle brown sugar in bottom of greased pan, drizzle ¼ cup melted butter. Place pineapple rings with maraschino cherries in each hole. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients. Blend on low speed for 1 minute, then on high for 3 minutes. Pour batter over pineapple. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Immediately turn cake over onto serving platter. Serve warm.
