Pineapple upside-down cupcakes are a delightful twist on the classic pineapple upside-down cake.

Here’s a basic recipe to get you started: Ingredients: 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple slices in juice, drained, juice reserved Maraschino cherries, halved (optional) 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened 3/4 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice Additional juice or milk, if needed Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. In a small saucepan, melt 1/4 cup of butter over low heat.

Once melted, add the brown sugar and stir until it’s completely combined and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Spoon a tablespoon of the brown sugar mixture into each cupcake liner. Place a pineapple slice on top of the brown sugar mixture in each cupcake liner. If you like, you can place a cherry half in the center of each pineapple slice. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the reserved pineapple juice, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. If the batter seems too thick, you can add a little extra pineapple juice or milk to thin it out. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, carefully remove the cupcake liners. Serve and enjoy your delicious pineapple upside-down cupcakes! These cupcakes are a delightful treat, perfect for any occasion or as a special dessert.
