  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package pineapple cake mix (such as Duncan Hines® Pineapple Supreme)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ⅓ cups pineapple juice

  • 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar for dusting, or as needed

Instructions

Step 1
Move an oven rack into the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Line a work surface with waxed paper.

Spoon 1 teaspoon melted butter into the bottom of each sprayed muffin cup.

Spoon 1 tablespoon brown sugar in each muffin cup.

Step 6
Press a maraschino cherry into the center of the brown sugar in each muffin cup.

Step 7
Spoon a heaping tablespoon of crushed pineapple over the cherry and compact it with the back of a spoon into an even layer.

Step 8
Mix pineapple cake mix, eggs, pineapple juice, and vegetable oil in a large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Turn mixer speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.

Step 9
Pour pineapple cake batter into the muffin cups, filling them to the top; do not overfill.

Step 10
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
