Those Mini Pineapple Upside-Down cakes are easy, candy, and certain to position a grin on all of us’s face! similar to the conventional dessert, but in mini shape! ideal for parties and celebrations!

First matters first: to make this recipe you’re going to need a jumbo muffin tin. The pineapple slices gained’t suit in a everyday muffin tin, and at the same time as you can cut them up into tiny portions, I fantastically suggest springing for the pan and following the recipe as written.


Plus, after you buy a jumbo muffin tin you can make other extremely good recipes like these nutella filled chocolate chew zucchini truffles. Win-win! i purchased my jumbo muffin tin at Sur l.  a. table, but you may also buy one from amazon.

Now that we’ve protected pan commercial enterprise, allow’s communicate elements. To make those mini pineapple upside-down desserts you’ll want flour, cornstarch, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, rum OR vanilla extract (definitely your name!), pineapple juice, pineapple slices, and maraschino cherries. if you buy the sliced pineapples in real pineapple juice, you have to have sufficient juice from the can.


For the cake:

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 teaspoons rum (or pure vanilla extract)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

For the topping:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups dark brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon rum (or vanilla extract)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 12 pineapple rings
  • 12 maraschino cherries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Generously spray a 12-mold JUMBO muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl; whisk smooth. Add in the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and rum (or vanilla), and beat smooth. Stir in pineapple juice and set aside. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and cornstarch. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until just combined. Be sure not to over mix here! Set mixture aside while you make the topping.

For the topping:

  1. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the brown sugar, rum, and salt, and cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.
  2. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the topping mixture into the bottom of each muffin tin; place a pineapple ring on top, then place a cherry in the middle of each pineapple ring. Divide the cake batter evenly among the prepared tins, fill each muffin tin 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the tops are puffed and golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  3. Remove from the oven and cool in pan for 5 minutes. Gently run a knife around the edge of each cake to help loosen any stuck bits, then gently place a wire cooling rack on top and quickly flip over. You may want to place the cooling rack on a large sheet pan before doing this, to help make it less messy. Serve cakes warm or at room temperature.
