These are the best upside down pineapple cakes I have ever had. I made double the recipe and froze them. When I had visitors I popped them in the microwave for a minute and they were as good as the day they were originally made, Yum Yum
I'm not sure what a 3" muffin pan is but I used a standard muffin pan and this did not work. I ended up cutting out a quarter of the pineapple slice (and probably should have cut out more. I tried dumping the first tin onto a piece of wax paper, but the muffins went everywhere and the pinepapples went elsewhere. I quickly put them back together as I was making them for a work birthday, but the brown sugar mixture was left behind on the wax paper. When the second tin came out of the oven, I carefully scooped each cake out with a spoon, but the liquified brown sugar was left behind in the tin. The cakes tasted fine and were actually kind of pretty in a lopsided way, but I wouldn't attempt this again unless I substituted crushed pineapple.
These were easy and tasty. I used my Texas sized muffin pans to make them (the pineapple rings fit perfectly) and ended up with about double-sized portions for what's listed for the nutritional info with the recipe. Will definitely make again.
Great recipe. A suggestion - Instead of using whole pineapple, just used crushed works the same.
I thought this was wonderful. I just cut a small piece of the pineapple out to make it fit in a standard muffin cup, it was easy. Everyone loved them and I will be making them again.
I choose not to make individual cakes. Instead used an oblong glass baking dish. The recipe is very good. Thank You!
This was the best pineapple cake I have ever tasted. I recommend mixing in one cup of crushed pineapple to the cake mix. This makes it chunky and even sweeter. Great recipe!!!!!!!
Fantastic! I had enough to make 1 dozen regular sized cupcakes and one 8 inch round cake! I too had to cut a piece of the pineapple ring off but no big deal, I put a cherry on top in the middle of the ring after they cooled and they were a huge hit with my family! This is a keeper.
