Recommendations for making the perfect Pineapple Upside Down Cakes Recipe:

  • Make sure you use refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuit dough, NOT crescent rolls.
  • For this recipe, I like to use crushed pineapple, in my opinion it adds more flavor.
  • You can serve the cakes topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries.
  • Preferably serve the cakes the same day, the biscuits get tougher if they stay for too long.
  • Right after you take the cakes out of the oven, you can brush each one with one tablespoon of rum.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10
Author: Catalina Castravet

Ingredients

  • 1 10 ounces can crushed pineapple strain and save the juice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup or 1/2 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 12 ounces package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits there are 10 biscuits in the package
Whipped cream:
  • 2 cups full fat heavy whipping cream cold
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Garnish:
  • 10 maraschino cherries
  • fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease 1a muffin tip with butter or with baking spray.
  3. Combine the strained pineapple flesh with brown sugar and butter, mix well.
  4. Divide the pineapple mixture equally among the muffin cups.
  5. Optional: place a cherry in the center of each muffin cup, or save them to top the cakes before serving.
  6. Add 1 biscuit into each cup on top of sugar and pineapple mixture and press it down slightly.
  7. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the reserved pineapple juice over each biscuit.
  8. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the biscuits golden. I like to insert a toothpick into the biscuit, to make sure the interior is not raw.
  9. Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes before invert the muffin pan onto a plate to release the biscuits.
  10. Serve slightly warm topped with whipped cream, maraschino cherries and fresh mint leaves.
Whipped Cream:
  1. Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a high speed mixer and whisk on medium high until stiff peaks form, stopping once to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  2. Make sure not to over mix, the mixture will be grainy if you do. The mixture should resemble stiff clouds, billowy peaks, not runny, and it should hold on well to the whisk, also if should be easy to pipe it.
