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.
What Ingredients Are In Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cake?
- pineapple juice
- cooking oil
- yellow box cake
- pineapple rings
- maraschino cherries
- brown sugar
- cooking spray
This is a really simple recipe and if you're like me you have most of these things at home.
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.

These would be great to make for my daughter's party this weekend. Just a couple of problems. I do have a multi-cooker, but there's no way I can get 8 ramikins in it at one time (not even sure if I could even get four in). I only have four as it is, so I'm wondering if these could be done in batches? Or, do you have an alternative, oven variation of this recipe? I guess I could measure out the cake mix and keep half of it aside for later and just make four. We definitely have enough cherries.
Yes you can do them in batches, just use the same cook time.
Do you cover them? Can you stack them with a trivet in between? Thanks!
I do not cover if you check out the video it shows exactly what I did. I did stack, but no trivet in between.
Could you do it as 1 big cake?
I don't see why not! Let us know how it goes!
In the video it looks like there are only 6, but it calls for 8 pineapple rings and cherries. Does this make 6 or 8? Also, is it the 4 oz or 6 oz ramekins?
It's a typo. Should be 6, sorry.
Did you use 4 or 6 oz ramekins? If I used 6 cup bunt pan how long would I cook it for?
I believe mine are 4 ounces, and I'm not sure for a bundt pan.
these look yummy, how would you break down the nutrition values for 1
can you make these in the muffin pan
Not in the instant pot, but I am sure you can in the oven.
I did instructions as indicated and my cakes did not turn out/ not cooked enough. Not sure what went wrong.
