15-Minute Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes
Recipe yields 6 cakes.
7 ounce tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 15 ounce can of pineapple chunks, drained and roughly chopped
1⁄3 cup brown sugar
1 TBS orange juice or lemon juice
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together 1⁄4 cup of the brown sugar (set remaining sugar aside), and orange juice; set aside.
2. Using a regular sized muffin tin, sprayed with nonstick spray, place 1 TBS of the juice/sugar mixture into the bottom. Next, place 2 TBS chopped pineapple chunks into the mixture. Top with dough for one buttermilk biscuit, pressing down a bit. Sprinkle a bit of remaining brown sugar on top. Repeat steps for all spaces.
3. Place into oven and bake for 12-14 minutes or until tops are slightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Invert the muffin tin onto a plate, and arrange cakes to serve. Enjoy!
