Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the stick of butter in a 9x13-inch baking dish and put this in the oven while it preheats for just a few minutes until the butter is melted.
Melt butter, sprinkle brown sugar over pineapple slices, reserving pineapple juice, and place cherry in center.
Prepare the cake mix as directed on the package, substituting pineapple juice for some of the water. Slowly pour the cake batter over the pineapple slices and cherries.
Place toothpicks in corners and center of cake and cover with cling wrap or aluminum foil before it cools.
