I made these cupcakes for fun one day while looking through a bunch of recipes. I tweaked a few of them and this was the result! My coworkers loved them and requested them for every event for several weeks! My DH didn't understand why we had to share them...

How to Make Pineapple Cupcakes with Cherry Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease cupcake pans or set out cupcake papers.
  2. Mix cake batter according to box directions, substituting the pineapple juice for the water. Stir until smooth.
  3. Fill cups 1/2 full. I like to use a smaller ice cream scoop for consistency. Using a teaspoon or smaller measuring spoon, center a scoop of pineapple on top of the batter. Pineapples will sink to the center while baking.
  4. Bake for approx. 18 minutes, until lightly golden on top.
  5. To make frosting, cream the butter and cream cheese. Slowly add powdered sugar until you get the desired consistency.
  6. A little at a time, mix in juice from maraschino cherries until bright pink color and a good cherry flavor are achieved. You will probably have to add more powdered sugar to maintain desired consistency.
  7. After cupcakes are cooled, frost or pipe frosting onto cupcakes. Cut the cherries in half and place on top for an accent.
