Grilled Pineapple Up-side Down Cake

This recipe was so super easy and fast and delicious!
The sauce caramelizes on the BBQ...yummy!

1 small pineapple cut into wedges (canned pineapple is okay too)
32 maraschino cherries
3/4 c. butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
3 Tbs. lemon juice
1 pound cake (10.75 oz) cut into 8 slices (Wayne found individual pound cakes near wal-marts bakery)
whipped cream
16 skewers

*Make sauce in small saucepan - butter, sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and simmer until slightly thickened (about 5 minutes)
*Brush both sides of cake slices with sauce and grill for 1-2 minutes, until grill marked and warmed.
* Grill fruit on skewers for 2 minutes or until warm and grill marked
* Top cake with 2 skewers and drizzle with more sauce and a dollop of whipped cream

Note to self - if I ever take a photo of anything on the BBQ again.....let out the smoke before taking the photo so it doesn't fog up the camera lens =)
