Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes
In a perfect world, I would make these from scratch. And by all means if you want to, go right ahead.

But sometimes a doctored up cake mix does wonders. I mean adding brown sugar and butter to cake mix? Sounds like a sure win to me.

These Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes have been calling to me for years. Try not to burn the top of your mouth off eating them straight out of the oven. I did.

 

Ingredients
1 can (20 oz) sliced pineapple, drained
1 box yellow cake
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
24 maraschino cherries


Directions
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
Cut each pineapple slice into3 pieces; set aside. In large bowl, beat cake mix, milk and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
In small bowl, stir together melted butter and brown sugar. Spoon 1 teaspoon butter mixture into each muffin cup. Top each with 2 pineapple pieces. Place cherry in center of pineapple pieces. Spoon cup batter into each cup.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Run knife around edge of cupcakes to loosen; invert onto cookie sheet.
Serve warm with sweet whipped cream.
