Semi-homemade pineapple cupackes

At times I am lazy when it comes to baking...I know I am not the only one - so take a look.

I made these for Brady's family Sponge Bob birthday party...and they made a HUGE hit.

What you need
  • Butter cake mix (whatever brand is you favorite)
  • Butter and eggs for the cake mix
  • Crushed pineapple
  • Store bought (or home made) cream cheese frosting
  • Food coloring
How to prepare
  • I take a box butter cake mix and prepare based on the box directions, except I replace some of the water with the juice from the crushed pineapple
  • Fill the cupcake tin about 1/2 of the way
  • Put a small amount of the crushed pineapple in the middle (the amount you want to include will be based on you taste)
  • Top off with batter
  • Cook following box directions (usually about 20 minutes)
  • Once cupcakes are cooked and cooled, split the cream cheese frosting into a few containers...add a couple of drops of food coloring and mix
  • and then frost
These are so simple - and alternatively you can add the pineapple right into the batter if you don't want to take the extra step to layer into the cupcake tin.
