Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes just like Grandma use to make, easy cupcake recipes, fruit cupcakes, dessert recipesGrandmas Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes ~ Quick and Easy Recipe

When I was little my Grandma always made pineapple upside down cake,  the smell of sweet cake filled your lungs as soon as you walked in the door.   Grandma made everything from scratch, and I do not think I could ever recreate the exact ewwy gooey goodness she made.  But these cupcakes are a fast and easy copycat version that make me think of and remember the happy memories of my childhood.

Yields: 24 cupcakes

Ready in 45 minutes

Ingredients:
1?2 cup butter, melted
1 1?2 cups brown sugar
24 maraschino cherries
2 (20 ounce) cans crushed pineapple
1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups pineapple juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Directions:
1. Move an oven rack into the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Grease 24 muffin cups.
3. Line a work surface with waxed paper
4. Spoon 1 teaspoon melted butter into the bottom of each muffin cup.
5. Spoon 1 tablespoon brown sugar in each muffin cup.
6. Press a maraschino cherry into the center of the brown sugar in each muffin cup.
7. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of crushed pineapple over the cherry and compact it with the back of a spoon into an even layer.
8. Mix yellow cake mix, eggs, pineapple juice and vegetable oil in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Turn mixer speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.
9. Pour cake batter into the muffin cup, filling them to the top; do not overfill.
10. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
11. Allow cupcakes to cool at least 5 minutes before inverting muffin cups onto the wax paper to release. Serve with pineapple and cherry sides up.

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, Peel an egg with a glass jar, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try it, Hard Boiled Eggs, Easter EggHow to peel an egg in less than 5 seconds with a glass jar

Are you ready for a crazy tip, that will make you scratch your head and make you think… hmmmm I have been peeling eggs wrong my whole life.  This kitchen tip is so simple, but will save you a ton of time. You can watch a video on how to peel an egg in less than 5 seconds with a jar here.

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try itAll you need is a hard boiled egg, a glass jar or cup, some water and your muscles. Boil your eggs, once they are done drain the hot water off and fill the pot with cold ice water to try and cool the eggs down asap.  Let them sit a few minutes. Grab an egg, put it in a glass jar with about an inch of water in the bottom.  Cover the top of the jar with your hand or a lid. Now give the jar a shake, and swirl it at the same time.  The shell should break away from the egg and come off in a large piece. Leaving a whole shelled egg behind.  Like I said before…. Amazing right!

How to peel an egg in 5 seconds or less, kitchen hack, this is the coolest idea ever I can not wait to try it, Hard Boiled Eggs, Easter EggMake sure you add the water to the jar or the egg will break in half with the shell still on.  I am not sure why but sometimes even with the water the egg will not let the shell come free all the way. I am not sure if it has to do with the freshness of the eggs, or how long they have been cooked? Or maybe I am having a bad day and shake the poor little eggs to hard? The egg might be a mess and broken, but by golly shaking them like that is good therapy lol.  Either way this trick tends to work about 80% off the time, but it is not 100% efficient.
