C is for Cupcake!

That's good enough for me...

Publix had a buy one get one sale on cake mixes, so i ended up with a random box of pineapple cake mix. I really didn't want to make a cake cause, it's only us, so i decided to try to make pineapple upside down cupcakes. Cause i feel bad eating a half a cake, but i don't feel bad eating half a dozen cupcakes. Go figure! lol.

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

While making these cupcakes, i came across the most amazing taste sensation i've ever eaten in my whole entire life... BUTTER AND BROWN SUGAR. Good Lord, have you ever eaten softened butter and brown sugar? Yeah, me neither. I mean i was so blown away, i grabbed my hubby and told him babe, you gotta try this. And there we stood in the kitchen eating brown sugar and butter just oohing and aahing away. lol.

All of the picking at the brown sugar left us with half a dozen cupcakes unadorned. Eh, whatev, it was worth it, BUT the cupcakes made the right way, upside down-style, were really unbelievable. My father in law came over, tried them and said oooh that's good! :)

I came across a couple other recipes out there on the world wide web and they suggested using crushed pineapple. I think the slices (trimmed) worked out just fine, but i would like to try this recipe again using yellow cake mix and crushed pineapple. ;)
