       Title: PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN LOAF
  Categories: Breads, Holiday
       Yield: 6 servings
  
       8 oz Pineapple rings, drained
       4    Maraschino cherries, halved
       2 pk Coffee cake mix (10.5 ozs.
            -each)
       2    Eggs
       1 c  Milk, divided
  
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter the bottom and sides
   of an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Cut pineapple rings in half. Place
   4 pineapple-ring halves decoratively on the bottom of the prepared
   pan, and the remaining 4 halves standing along the long side of the
   pan. Place cherry halves, cut-side-down, in the center indentations
   of the pineapple-halves. Sprinkle bottom and sides of the pan with 1
   1/2 packets of the crumb mixture from coffee-cake mix. Discard
   remaining crumb mixture. Prepare bags of coffee-cake mix with eggs as
   package directs, but use the milk instead of water called for.
   Squeeze batter from both bags gently over streusel, pineapple, and
   cherries. Let stand 10 minutes. Tap pan gently on counter to release
   any air bubbles. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until a wooden pick
   inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack for
   20 minutes. With a long, serrated knife, cut the top of the bread
   level with the top of the pan. Invert bread onto a serving plate
   while warm. To serve, cut with a sharp (not serrated) knife.
