Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

They could have been prettier, but they tasted AMAZING!! This recipe made 2 dozen.
Mmmmm Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes!


2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 can pineapple tidbits
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
12 maraschino cherries

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and butter; mix well. Spoon into 24 greased muffin cups(grease well, otherwise they stick and fall apart). 

Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Place one cherry and 5-6 pieces of pineapple in each muffin cup.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and
add water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1-1/4 cups ; mix well. Spoon over pineapple, filling each cup two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
let sit for 2 minutes then invert onto wire racks to cool.
Eat while still warm!
