MY REVIEW

My wife will be surprised that I got this dessert. This is my first since my retirement. I made 24 mini molds and 6 regular. I had too much cake mixture that I can throw. She eats a few and the rest will be for me. Sorry for my English because I have to take a translator.

Oh my gosh, are these good!!!! Next time, I'm going to wait and put the cherries on after I take them out of the pan, just to make them prettier. Mine didn't quite look like the picture, but oh are they good!!!!!

I like the fact that this recipe makes individual servings. It is perfect for barbecues and picnics. I used whole pineapple rings. They were just a little too big to it in the muffin cups, so I removed a piece from each ring to fit into the muffin cups. April 20th is National Upside Down Cake Day.

Lovely and moist. I added a few crushed pecans in the butter and sugar mixture. I also used a French Vanilla cake mix.
