Mini Pineapple Upside Cake

December 2, 2011

Sometimes it is a challenge for me to come up with something for just one or a couple of people. I hate to serve the same dessert two days in the row to the same guests and I surely don't need it sitting around here to tempt me everyday. I have been working on this recipe for awhile. I am been tweaking it as to get it just the right sweetness. I feel like I have perfected it. So I bring this lovely dessert that serves 4 to you, however it works great if you want to scale it down for just one as well.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Mini Pineapple Upside Cake - Serves 4PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN Coconut oil or butter, brown sugar, 1 small can of ring pineapple(save juice), half of the pineapple juice from the canned pineapple, 1 egg, 3 Tb melted butter, vanilla, 1/2 C flour, 6 TB sugar, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp of baking soda, salt, powdered sugar and marsh cherry.
