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.
