Cherry Upside Down Cake

Ordinarily, cherry mix refers to the syrup in which maraschino cherries are packed. In this case, however, I’d guess it means the recipe for Frozen Cherry Mix from the same binder.

That said, I’d consider using this Cherry Pineapple Sauce instead, since it makes smaller quantities with less work.
