In the mood for something sweet but don’t want a lot? This recipe is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth and saves calories! This is a super easy recipe anyone can do. It literally took me 30 mins to make this start to finish. Let’s get bakin’!

Prep time 10 min

Bake time: 15 min

Total Time: 25 min


  • 1 Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cup water (for cake mix)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted (for cake mix)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter (for topping)
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  •  slices pineapple from 14-ounce can, drained
  • Whipped cream for garnish (optional)
  • maraschino cherries  (optional)


  1.  Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Spray cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place pineapple in each cupcake tin. Then melt the butter and mix it with brown sugar.
  4. Pour the brown sugar mixture over the pineapple.
  5. Prepare cake mix with water, 1/2 cup melted butter and eggs according to package directions.
  6. Then pour the cake  batter over the brown sugar and bake for 15 mins.
  7. After cakes are baked, flip  onto sheet pan when the pan is hot. Otherwise the sugar will stick to the cupcake pan and the cake will be harder to remove.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!
