i like pineapple upside down cake and i thought a cupcake version would be kinda neat. everyone likes cupcakes. if you use olive oil it keeps your cakes moister longer than if you use butter or margarine or another oil. hope you like the cupcake version.
mix the first 8 ingredients in lrg mixing bowl onhigh with electric mixer until all ingredients are perfectly incorperated together. batter should never be thin. if batter is thin add a little flour at a time to thicken batter. you can always add but can't take away. place pineapple sleces in cupcake pan place cherrie in middle of pineapple. if you don't have a lrg. cupcake for lrg cupcakes piese pineapple tidbits in a circle in cupcake pan and place cherries in middle. place in a 350 degree oven that has been preheated for at least 20 mins. place on bottom rack for about 20mins or until a toothpick comes out clean. let cool.
