Do you see what bundt cake this is??? It’s 90! I only have 10 to go!!
And guess what? I have about 85 more ideas in my head…but I will stop at 100 (and it will be a fabulous finale!). I can’t believe it took me 90 versions of my bundt cake to finally make a Pineapple Upside Down version. Isn’t that a cake staple? Simple, delicious, summery…this is one of those cakes I can justify for breakfast. You’re going to be so happy I didn’t forget to include Pineapple Upside Down in my 100 Bundt Cakes.
And psssst: don’t forget, you can make 12 mini cakes with this recipe or one regular sized bundt cake.
1 (15 oz) can sliced pineapples (slice each pineapple ring in half), reserve all liquid
1 box of yellow cake mix
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 1/4 pineapple juice reserved from your can of pineapples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan or 12 mini bundt pans. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, puddings, oil, pineapple juice and eggs with electric mixer.
Next, carefully place your slices of pineapple along the bottom of the pan or if you’re using mini pans, place one ring in each mini pan. You will not use all of the pineapple! Just place one row of slices in a ring around the pan.
Carefully pour your cake batter on top of the pineapple in your bundt pan and bake 40-45 minutes for one big cake or 16 to 18 minutes for mini cakes. Remove from oven when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes. Then, invert the cake onto a serving plate. Let the cake finish cooling.
Because there isn’t a frosting, this cake is really quick to whip together. I buy the 15 oz can of pineapples because I want as much pineapple juice as I can get for the batter…you won’t use all of your pineapple. Reserve the extra pineapple for a separate recipe. If you find your can of pineapples doesn’t give you the 1 1/4 cups of juice you need, just add water to whatever pineapple juice you have until you reach the 1 1/4 cups of liquid.
This was love at first bite.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful moms out there. This would be the perfect bundt cake to whip up for your mama.
