Upside Down Pineapple Cupcakes


This recipe will fill all 6 cakes in a large muffin/cupcake tin. I have not halved the recipe to fill a 12 tin cupcake tin, but I'm sure it would work.

  • Topping:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp pineapple juice
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 stick
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 can pineapple rings
  • 6 marachino cherries (double if you are trying 12 cupcake tin)



Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray the muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a mixing bowl, add eggs, sugar and pineapple juice. Beat for 2 minutes.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and turn the mixer back on, for another 2 minutes.
4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Stir on low for one minute.
5. Spoon a layer of the sugar mixture into the bottom of each muffin tin. Add a pineapple ring and place a cherry in the center of each. Pour in the cake mixture until 3/4 full.
6. Bake jumbo cakes for 25 minutes, for regular cupcakes, 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
7. Remove from the oven and let cool in pan for 3 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each cake to help loosen. Place a wire cooling rack on top and flip them over, over a sheet tray to catch any drippings. Place wire rack on sheet tray and let cool.
