 Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake In The Instant Pot

I love mini cakes and this Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake is amazing, the pineapple juice made the cake batter extremely moist and the final result was something that pretty much melted in your mouth, and adding the pineapple slice and the maraschino cherries made it that much better.

Alternatively, you can use crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits if that is what you have. I used ramekins like these ramekins to make my cakes.

You can even serve with pineapple on the side.

The kids devoured them. They were kind of upset that there were not more, I think these would also freeze very well. If you want to freeze them, lay them on a cookie sheet not touching and freeze about 8 hours then remove and place in a freezer-safe bag or bowl.

These are my goto for gatherings and parties where I need a quick and easy finger dessert.


You could also make these in the egg cups too to make a more bite-size muffin desert.
