With leftover crushed pineapple in the fridge begging to be used, I turned to this Pineapple Upside Down Muffins Recipe.

Just like Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, these muffins cool and are flipped over–making a very nice presentation.

Top with a cherry and make them extra pretty! We didn’t wait for these to cool, but dug right in. Yum!

Very different muffin--and very good!

Measure the buttermilk into a large measuring cup, then add in the egg melted butter to that to minimize clean-up.

I think it would also be cute to top with a cherry.


  • 1/4 Cup Butter, Melted
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 8 0z Crushed Pineapple, Drained
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour

  1. Preheat oven to 375*.
  2. Grease muffin tins. Set aside.

  4. Sprinkle Brown Sugar over the top.
  5. Set aside.
  6. In a bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients.
  7. Make a well in the center.
  8. In another bowl whisk together Eggs, Buttermilk, and Butter.
  9. Add quickly to flour mixture. Combine. Do not over-mix.
