A whole box of cake mix was way too much for 12 cupcakes. I used the cupcake liners and they came out swimming in butter on the bottom even though I didn't use all the melted butter. I made a round upside down cake with the leftover cake mix repeating process for the cupcakes.
This pineapple upside down cake is made in an iron skillet. It's quick, easy and so beautiful.
I've been making this basic recipe for years with a couple differences: I used a yellow cake mix with the juice from the pineapple in place of the water (add water to the juice if necessary). I've used pineapple tidbits and rings cut up to fit instead of the crushed pineapple. Crushed pineapple can sometimes make the cake under it too mushy sometimes. Instead of putting the batter directly into the muffin pan, I used paper liners which is so much easier for lunches and serving at picnics. It's a surprise when they take the paper off to eat it! It's basically sweet enough for me to eat like this but occasionaly I've dusted powdered sugar on top of the cupcakes after slightly cooled. Oh, and if you're a coconut lover, add a little to the brown sugar before laying in the pineapple and cherries. This is a great recipe anyway you make it!
