It’s CUPCAKE time! I have been on a big pineapple kick lately and Lyla is all about it. I have been buying a lot of fresh pineapple and we can eat a whole pineapple in a day. No joke.
Ellie isn’t so much into the pineapple…but she was once it was in cake. Big surprise. That girl is going to turn into a dessert. I swear. I think this Halloween I need to dress her as a cupcake. It’s fitting!
These cupcakes are a “one-bowl” dessert – meaning you only need one bowl to make them. Does anyone else get super excited when you see a recipe is made in one bowl?? I absolutely love when I get to bake and not wash a billion things.
I seriously can’t wait till the girls are old enough to be my little dish washers and then I can bake without having to do the cleanup. Wait — who am I kidding? I am way too much of a control freak to let them wash my good mixing bowls. (My mom got me these mixing bowls for Christmas and they are amazing – love that they don’t move with the silicone bottom!)
These cupcakes would be adorable made in a mini bundt pan. I used a traditional cupcake pan because a friend had borrowed my mini bundt pan, however I really think it would make these even more adorable!
These One-Bowl Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes are just like the classic version — a sweet dense cake with a brown sugar caramelized pineapple topping.
Being in individual mini cake sizes makes them more adorable and easier to serve at a party. I like topping them with whip cream and an extra cherry – but it’s definitely optional and not a must!
