I choose to use my muffin pan so my husband could take some to work. I baked them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I made 12 muffins only. My husband likes cinnamon, so he sprinkled some cinnamon sugar at the bottom and on the tops of 3 muffins to see how they’d taste. To me the only thing missing was cherries! Hey, pineapple upside down muffins? ?

  1. I’ve often made this recipe with just the angel food cake mix and the pineapple. Some variations of the recipe also add a small can of chopped and drained mandarin oranges. When you make this recipe for the first time, be sure to use a very large mixing bowl, as the mixture really bubbles up and rises quickly.
