Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a great recipe for parties and fun. These are easy to prepare, and you can find them in most supermarkets. You can also bake them at home if you do not feel like buying them. They are made by gently pressing down the fruit into mini muffin pans. Then you stick them into the muffin cups and bake as normal. These delicious cakes are great for eating on their own or as an appetizer.
To make these mini pineapple upside down cupcakes, first heat up your oven to 350 degrees. Put a ring of aluminum foil around the outside of each muffin cup and place one cake inside. Heat the brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to bubble. Allow the brown sugar to bubble till it begins to smoke. Once it starts to smoke, turn the oven off. Set aside and let the brown sugar sit for about 10 minutes so it can heat up to full strength.
Next, you will need to make a paste out of half of the brown sugar and half of the packed fruit. Mix the paste well together until smooth. Add the rest of the brown sugar and put the ramekin into the mix. Combine the cake mix with the rest of the wet ingredients and pour it into the mini pineapple
upside down cake pan.
Bake the cakes for only about one hour. Once done, remove them from the oven and cool on a wire cooling rack. Once you have let them cool, you can frost them with food coloring if you wish. Or you can just serve them plain!
If you like tropical fruit flavors, you might also like to try a tropical theme for your next party or special occasion. Using similar colors like brown sugar and adding an additional layer of food coloring to your mini cakes will make them very attractive. You could also play around with different fruit flavors by substituting cranberries or strawberries for pineapples and plums for oranges.
Serve the cakes warm. You can even cover them with a thin slice of pineapple for that festive look. This is sure to be a big hit at your next get-together for cake parties. You can find mini pineapple upside down cake recipes online or at your local grocery store.
For a fun and flavorful touch to your mini pineapple upside down cakes, then use ramekins. Ramekins are available at your local grocery store and look great pinned against the cake or on the side as you serve it.
