Rural Thursday Blog Hop #8

I don't love Pineapple Upside Down Cake
but lately it's been all the rage on Pinterest!!

Cracker Barrel featured it for a short time on their dessert menu
and let me tell you kids, it was amazing!

I'm not sure why I ordered it at Cracker Barrel,
I think I planned on eating the sweet stuff off the top
and giving the rest to the hubs...
and it was only $ 3.49, you just can't beat the price.

ooohhhhh it was so good!

So long story, even longer, I have been dying to make it! 

Yesterday, I baked folks and today I'll share the details!
This was easy peasy.


Here's the ingredient line up...

One yellow cake mix, with all the necessary ingredients,
(eggs, oil and water)
One Can of Pineapple Chunks
One stick of butter and 1 & 1/2 cups of brown sugar

Lightly grease the muffin cups,
8 would probably work better, but I don't have one.


Melt the good stuff,


then add the better stuff...the brown sugar of course,


and mix it till it looks like this!!


Prepare cake mix as per the directions on the box.


First a little of the sugar/butter mixture,
just enough to cover the bottoms.


Add diced pineapple chucks,


fill 3/4 full with cake batter and bake for 18 -20 minutes!!


If your lucky and they "pop out", they'll look like this!!
This recipe makes about 24 yummy little cakes!!

So there it is, my rural story for today.
I'm sharing it with
A Rural Thursday Blog Hop
Please visit Nancy at A Rural Journal
and Lisa at Two Bears Farm

Think about hoping in and hoping around!!

ps...I just realized I forgot the cherries, ooops!!
