Pineapple Upside-Down Cupcakes

Here's a twist for turning a crowd-pleasing classic dessert into fun individual treats!
By Jessica Walker

Pineapple, warm butter, gooey brown sugar and cherries are the delicious flavors that make up a pineapple-upside down cake. Now you can have all those amazing tastes in a cupcake. And you can eat the whole thing yourself. How great is that!? 

Let’s get started! First, you will need Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix, butter, brown sugar and, of course, cherries.

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Cut each pineapple slice into four pieces; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, oil, eggs and reserved pineapple juice with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally.
