So, you originally heard about these cupcakes in this post and they have been a crowd pleaser ever since their debut in 2011. If one good thing came from that relationship it was the challenge I received to make "Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes" I thought I would share the recipe for those interested. I really like to add pictures with each step but forgot to take pictures last night. So, we will just have to work wiht words.
You will need:
Your favorite yellow cake mix recipe, or your favorite cake mix brand from the store.
1 stick butter
Fluffy White frosting (again you can make your own or purchase Betty Crocker)
Cherries with stems
Start by mixing up your cake mix, set aside.
Add 1/2 tsp butter in the bottom of pan.
Add 1/2 tsp brown sugar into pan
Add 1/2 tsp crushed pineapple into each pan
Add cake mix batter on top to finish off.
Place in oven for 18 minutes, let cool.
Once cupcakes have cooled i slice the tops off with a knife evenly with the pan, this helps them stand up straight and stack easily, to prevent falling over.
Place cupcake pineapple side up, add fluffy white frosting, add another cupcake on top pineapple side up. Finish off with a more fluffy white frosting and a cherry and viola -
These are seriously amazing and your friends/family will love them!
