Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes


Madeline and I made these for a school project a few months ago and I never got around to posting the recipe.  I didn’t try them but Jerm gave them two thumbs up.  Also, I forgot to buy maraschino cherries (probably because they’re all-out disgusting!), but most recipes call for them I think.

I used an old recipe from a cookbook and just modified it to make individual cakes.

Ingredient List:

2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
4 TBSP pineapple juice


1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 can pineapple rings
maraschino cherries (optional, obviously)

Mix together the eggs, sugar (white), and pineapple juice, beating well for a few minutes. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and beat for another 2 minutes.

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. When completely melted spoon the mixture into bottom of a greased large muffin tin, distributing evenly.

Place a pineapple ring over the brown sugar mixture, then add a cherry to the center of each ring.
Pour cake mixture over the top, filling about 3/4 of the way.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.   Cool in the pan for a few minutes, then turn out on cooling racks.

And voila! Easy enough that a 5-year-old can do it. Well, mostly. 😉



I love mini and individual-sized desserts.  They’re just so cute.
