Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks in pineapple juice
  • 1 (8 oz) can pineapple chunks in pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup (2.7 oz) packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (2.6 oz) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (5 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (5.6 oz) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) pineapple juice (from pineapple chunk can)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 12 maraschino cherries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 12 muffin cups well with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Drain both cans of the pineapple chunks while reserving 1/2 cup of the juice for batter. Place pineapple over several layers of paper towels to drain well. Melt 1/3 cup butter in a microwave safe bowl then stir brown sugar into melted butter.
  3. Divide mixture among muffin wells adding about 2 tsp to each. Arrange pineapple chunks on top of the sugar mixture about 5 in each (you may not use all of them but I found one 20 oz can wasn t quite enough so I ended up opening 2 cans. The pineapple may be too long to make a flower shape but try to squeeze in 5 of them unless they are large chunks). Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer whisk together flour 3/4 cup sugar baking powder and salt.
  5. Set mixer with a paddle attachment add 1/4 cup softened butter and pineapple juice then mix until batter is smooth about 1 – 2 minutes (if using a paddle attachment that doesn t constantly scrape bowl then occasionally stop mixer and scrape down sides and bottom of bowl throughout mixing process).
  6. Mix in egg and vanilla extract until well combined. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups layering batter over pineapple layer.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into into center of cupcake comes out clean about 23 – 26 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes then run a sharp knife around edges to loosen.
  8. Place a wire cooling rack over top of muffin pan and flip to invert onto wire rack. Let cool completely then pipe sweetened whipped cream over cupcakes just before serving and top with a maraschino cherry.
  9. For the sweetened whipped cream:
  10. In a mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer (or in a clean stand mixing bowl set with whisk attachment) whip cream on high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar then whip until stiff peaks form.
