Has anyone done this and can give me some ideas on how to achieve this? Thanks
I actually saw a tutorial done by another member....let me search for it.
There is a recipe in the recipe section. I didnt know how to put up a link so here is the recipe
Serves/Yields: 6 cupcakes
Category: Cake Mix Cakes, Yellow Cakes, Pineapple Cakes
1/4 Cup Butter
2/3 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 Cup Chopped Pineapple
1 1/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Shortening
3/4 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
**you can substitute this ingredients with yellow cake mix
6 Maraschino Cherries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a small pan. Add brown sugar to melted butter and stir to dissolve, remove from heat. Using a large muffin tin (6 muffins, 3 1/2" wide openings), distribute butter mixture evenly in each muffin opening. Place 1-2 tablespoons of pineapple in each opening, followed by a cherry pushed down into the center.
Beat remaining ingredients with an electric mix, scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Pour batter evenly in each muffin opening.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes our clean. Turn upside down onto a cookie sheet immediately. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
Thanks i was hoping you could make them right side up if possible.
Oh! You want the pineapple on top of the cupcakes. Well the only thing I can think of is cooking the cupcakes then make the pineapple, brown sugar on and butter on the stove. Then frost the cupcake with that mixture while they are still warm. Then add a cherry. I hope that helps
That sounds like a good idea. I might try to make it all on top in the oven on half and then do the others after they are cooked and see what happens. I'll let everyone know what happens! Thanks for all the help!
sorry I couldn't find the post with the pictures,but I think its the same method as the recipe that Karema posted. They sound delicious btw!
My Mother and her husband are coming next month and requested I try making a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, I never thought you could do them as Cupcakes! I'm going to try it, thanks for taking the time to post the recipe.
I have one in the oven! Thanks Karema once again for posting. I made it into a 9x13 and used a pineapple mix. Can't wait to try it!
Hey guys thought i would just let you know i made the cupcakes and they turned out just fine. The only thing they are a little messy in the liners so if i were to make them again i would not use liners. But they taste wonderful!! Happy baking everyone. Thanks again for all the help.
Would you recommend/suggest silicone liners for this or just bake it in the pan with no liner at all? Thanks!
I am so glad you posted that. I have been wondering how I could do this as well. Good idea!
I would not use any liners, but give the silicone ones a try. Can't hurt to experiment and see. Good luck and if you do decide to use them tell us how they work!
Karema -- that recipe sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing!!
I made these using foil liners. To serve, after cooling, I placed them (without removing from liner) in a regular paper liner, to eat.. the cupcake owner simply picks up the cupcake, peels the wrapper down the sides and inverts it into the paper liner, removes foil liner and voila!
I used half of a pineapple slice in the bottom (on top of the butter and brown sugar of course), it twists easliy into a circular shape then the cherry slice (sliced side down). Everyone loved them!
Everyone's suggestions sound yummy!! I personally don't use liners when making Pineapple USD CCs. I like the brown sugar-butter mixture going from the top of the cupcake, where the pineapples and marachino cherries are... to the bottom. I also use crushed pineapple instead of the rings. I find this gives a better flavor.
I completely forgot to come back in this thread. I wound up not making pineapple upside down cake/cupcakes for my Mom but my in laws are coming tomorrow and my MIL has requested I bake a homemade pineapple upside down cake. I have no clue how to go about that so I posted a request in the recipe thread. Than I stumbled across this and think I might give it a try. I am the Cupcaker in the family so I think this would be a nice twist to a classic cake!!!
It says to use a jumbo muffin tray, can you just use a regular cupcake tray instead? I don't know if it will be too small or if I can just cut the pineapple as another poster suggested. Or I can try my square silicone liners for it and hope for the best?
You sure can use jumbo muffin/cupcake pans. It would be the same as making the regular sized cuppie, just longer baking time!!
Good luck and I'm sure your MIL will love 'em
You're Welcome...Glad I could help
Thank you again! I actually just did a 2 layer cake instead, it was easier since my husband only bought an 8oz can of pineapple slices, which only provided 4 total. The recipe was easy and it tasted delicious so I'll definitely make them again, but this time as Cupcakes!
I'm happy to know that everything worked out
Thank you... I uploaded a picture of it in my photos. I can't wait to try the cupcakes this summer.
