These pineapple upside down cupcakes are so good and fun to make. One of the most requested recipes on my site.1 box Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic Yellow Cake Mix with pudding in the mix 1 (3.4 ounce) Vanilla Instant Pudding 3 eggs 1/3 cup oil 2/3 cup pineapple juice 1/3 cup milk 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple slices, drained (save juice) 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained (save juice)
Topping1 stick butter, melted 1 cup brown sugar maraschino cherries Spray muffin tins well with cooking spray. Melt butter and sugar together on top of the stove. Add 1 tablespoon sugar mixture to each muffin cup. Next, put in 1 tablespoon crushed, drained pineapple or 1 pineapple slice in bottom of each cup. In a large bowl mix cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, juice and milk with mixer. Fill cups 1/2 to 3/4 full with cake mix. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove and let cool at least 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges to loosen muffins from cups before removing. Turn cupcakes upside down on a platter and add cherries. Note: I used one regular 12 cup muffin tin and one large 6 cup tin to make these. This way the recipe made 18 cupcakes.. If just using regular 12 cup tins, it should make about 24 cupcakes. You could use all crushed pineapple or all pineapple rings as well. I wanted to try them both ways to see how they turned out. I think the pineapple rings work better in the larger cup muffin tins.) These would be good topped with whipped cream and you could add nuts to the mix. Enjoy! If you like this recipe, you might also like my recipe for Raisin Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting.
