My Aunt has been telling me about these pineapple upside down muffins that they used to have at Perkins. All of our Perkins have closed in Colorado so I never got the chance to taste these creations she talks so highly about! She told me about the topping so I searched and searched for a copycat recipe and found nothing, so here I am blindly copycatting (Is that a word?)a recipe I've never tasted. I don't know how Perkin's muffins taste but these are definitely yummy and I will be making them again!
Pineapple Upside Down Muffins
10 Pineapple Rings
10 Stemless Cherries
6 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
2 Cups Flour, whatever you prefer
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Butter, melted or Coconut oil to make it healthier
Melt the 4 Tablespoons of butter and mix in the brown sugar. Grease the muffin pans really well and add a spoonful to ten of them. Lay the pineapple rings down and put a cherry in the middle.
Mix the rest of the ingredients and add to the top of the pineapple and cherries.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure they are all the way done.
These are what they look like...yum
