  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 C white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple (2 cups) or 1-can pineapple rings
  • Whipped Cream
  • 8-maraschino cherries
  1. In a mixing bowl combine butter with white sugar. Beat for 2 minutes. Add eggs and milk and blend well. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix for 2 minutes.
  2. Slice the pineapple into thin slices, after you have cut 1/2 pineapple into quarters.
  3. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and add the pineapple. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar. Stir on low heat for one minute.
  4. Spoon a layer of the warm brown sugar mixture into the bottom of each muffin tin dividing among the 8 cups. There will be extra brown sugar glaze but use all of the pineapple. (Save for serving)
