How to Make pineapple upside down cupcakes


  • 1spray muffin tins ,well with cooking spray .NOTE. i used one regular 12 cup muffin pan and one large 6 cup, muffing pan. that way this makes 18 cupcakes or you can use the 12 cup muffin pan and that should make 24 cupcakes. on the smaller tins , crushed pineapple for the topping works best . i use both cause i wanted to see how they come out .
