Brown Sugar Mixture

Next drain your pineapple chinks and reserve the juice. We are going to use that in the cake mix

Drain Pineapple Reserve Juice

Place 5 chunks in each spot in a star shape

Place Pineapple Chunks

Next mix your cake mix…use pineapple juice in place of water…mine called for 1 cup of water so I used 1 cup of pineapple juice, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, and 3 eggs…

Mix Cake Batter

Having a helper to watch the mixer is a great idea!

Helper 2

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into each spot over the pinepple chunks

Pour Over Chunks

Bake at 350 about 20 minutes or so. Make sure toothpick comes out clean.

Out Of The Oven

Take a knife and make sure the sides are loose and cool for about 7 minutes, then flip them over onto a cookie sheet and let cool about 10 more minutes before lifting the muffin tin up

Flip Em

I transfer them onto cupcake liners for easy serving!

Place On Cupcake Holders

Let them cool completely!

Now we top them!!!

You can use Reddi Whip in the can or you can use a cake piper to put on the topping…then a cherry on top!!
