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

Took these to a church fundraiser and everyone wants the recipe. Easy to make too.

I haven't tried it yet but very excited to try this recipe - however, I have a question. As you say the recipe is diabetic friendly - could you use the sugar free cake mix? I think I will try it with that type of mix to assist in lowering the sugar. Any suggestions?

Haven't made it but looks good!! Nice presentation! @ ylns493p, muffin tins and cupcake tins are the same thing, but do come in a variety of sizes; this recipe uses the standard size (not mini or jumbo). Bake away!!

These mini pineapple upside-down cakes really look good and I'm looking forward to making them. I do have one question before I make them, and that is: What exactly do you mean by Muffin Pans? What is the difference between cupcake tins and muffin cups in for this recipe? Thank You!
