    Arrange pineapple slices over brown sugar. Place cherry in centre of each pineapple slice.
  2. In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly.
    Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over pineapple and cherries.
