These were great. As someone who doesn’t own a good processor I am always on the look out for easy baking recipes that don’t require that and can be made in a flash when the need for a sweet arises. These are so easy and taste like little pineapple donuts. I recently switched up the recipe and made them in tiny muffin tins so they were bite sized. I used fresh pineapple, a pinch of brown sugar, then xylitol for the remaining sugar. I swapped out the milk for almond milk and the butter for vegan butter and they still turned out great and super low calorie. Thank you so much for this.

I usually love Taste of Home recipes, but this is the worst thing I ever made. I am a good cood of many years and I made NO mistakes. This is just bad. Shame on you Taste of Home.....

Worst dessert I've made. Dough was heavy and not enough liquid from pineapple and sauce to moisten. Would not recommend.

Perfect size and moistness. I switched out the sugar for splenda and used fake butter and wheat flour. Think next time I will try adding dab of cocoa powder in the mix. Glad it was so small because i would have eaten more for sure.

Per serving this has 106 more calories than the Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe in the muffin tins. You can always freeze others for when company comes.

It was great not having to eat the same thing for a week or more. Would love more recipes for two!

Made this last night....due to health issues did some adjusting, less salt and less sugar also part splenda and part whole wheat flour. Very pleased with the results!

Has anyone tried this using splenda and light brown sugar?

This is "heart healthy", not diet healthy. Big difference. I will definitely make this.
