Ingredients

Cooking spray
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple slices- drained, juice reserved
1 (16-ounce) box pound cake mix
2 eggs
1 (6-ounce) can pineapple juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Spray a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Remove 3 pineapple slices from the can and reserve the juice and set aside. 

Chop remaining pineapple slices into small pieces and set aside.

In a large bowl combine the cake mix, eggs, and 1 can of pineapple juice. 

Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. 

Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. 

Stir in the chopped pineapple and combine well. 

Pour into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick, inserted into the center of the cake, comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. 

Remove and cool completely.

In a small pot over medium heat combine the reserved pineapple juice and 1/4 cup of water. 

Add the brown sugar and butter and bring to a simmer. 

Add the remaining 3 pineapple rings and saute for 4 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. 

Remove from the heat. Reserve.

To serve, remove the pound cake from the pan and transfer it to a serving plate. 

Arrange pineapple rings on top and secure with toothpicks, if necessary. 

Pour the sauce over the cake and serve.
