I love to get on Pinterest and spend my time perusing all the crafts and such....but my new favorite thing is all the recipes. I have so many pinned that i could cook for weeks and never get through them all!! 

So imagine my shock when i kept seeing all these recipes on Facebook!!!  

It just made a sugar addict like me extremely happy!!! All the good desserts and cookies, and cakes, and casseroles!! 


Well yesterday a recipe for pinapple upside down "little cakes" found its way in front of me on my fb page!


My husband has been taking care of me for two weeks...all while working seven days a week...God bless his little self! 
Thats one of the reasons i love him so....he takes care of me when i really need him!

And this recipe is exactly how i said "thanks"......
 They look so good don't they??? All sugary and yummy.....
 First you melt 1/2 stick of butter with 2/3 c. brown sugar in a small saucepan...until smooth and creamy.
Spray your muffin tins with cooking spray generously....then place the caramel goodness into the bottoms of each tin. 
Next you place a ring of pineapple on top of that and then top with a cherry.
For the cake:
You can use a yellow cake mix...but i followed the recipe and did this:
Mix two eggs, 2/3 c. white sugar and 4 Tblsp. of pineapple juice...beat for 2 mins.
Sift together 2/3 c. flour , 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/4 tsp. salt.
Add to wet mixture and beat for another 2 mins.
 Fill each muffin tin with the batter until its 3/4 of the way full and bake in a 350 oven for 15 mins. or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean!!
   And have your little cakes!!
Oh have to let them cool for 5 mins. before you invert the pan to remove them...or else they won't
"gel" mine!

As you know i have no patience and i just couldn't wait to see what they would look like...LOL!!
Plus i was afraid they would stick...oh well...they tasted GREAT!

Make sure to pour yourself a nice, big, cold glass of milk because these will pack a sugary punch...but oh so good they are!
And don't complain that it only makes 6...because you will not be able to eat more than one for sure!!


Until next time,

God bless!
