Delicious Pineapple Cupcakes

Since I always get good feedback from my recipes and since I personally love finding new recipes from fellow bloggers I thought I'd share with you the recipe for these amazing Pineapple Cupcakes. If you're a huge pineapple fan then you'll love these. My parents love pineapple and said that they were the best cupcakes I've made yet. 

Pineapple Cupcakes

Ingredients for the cupcakes:

1 Can (20 oz) pineapple tidbits ( and reserved juice )
1 package(s) yellow cake mix 

1/4 cup pineapple juice
3/4 cup water
2 eggs
3 tablespoons brown sugar


  • preheat oven to 350
  • line 18 cupcake liners in muffin tin
  • in a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for the cupcakes except the brown sugar and mix
  • add the brown sugar and swirl through the batter making rings
  • fill each cupcake liner 2/3 full
  • bake for 20 min
  • let cool completely before frosting

For the frosting

4    cups  powdered sugar
1    cup  softened butter ( 2 sticks )
2    tablespoon  pineapple juice
1    teaspoon  vanilla extract 
  • In a mixer cream the sticks of butter and powdered sugar
  • add the pineapple juice and vanilla (add more pineapple juice if needed for consistency)
  • beat for 5-10 min for completely smooth frosting
  • Pipe or spread on cooled cupcakes

For the glaze

3    tablespoon    butter
1/4    cup    brown sugar, packed
3    tablespoons    pineapple juice
1/2    Can (20 oz)    pineapple chunks

  • in a saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar
  • add the pineapple juice and fruit chunks
  • cook over medium heat for 5-7 min until the sugar starts to caramelize and the pineapples get a nice golden color
  • let cool completely {Do Not Put in fridge to speed up cooling this will cause the butter to solidify again}
  • place completely room temp pineapples on each cupcake and drizzle some of the glaze on each

  1. Wow, these look absolutely amazing! I love pineapple and light desserts as these appear to be. Totally off my diet but they still look delicious!

  2. These look positively scrumptious! I am a huge fan of pineapple and will have to try this recipe sometime soon. :)
