Mini size desserts are great for a holiday party or even your Christmas or New Years Day dinner. These mini pineapple upside down cakes should be apart of your holiday dessert table! The cake is super moist and fluffy and the pineapple on top has the right amount of sweetness to compliment the cake. This recipe is super easy to make because a boxed cake is the base of the cake. You could certainly make your cake from scratch but when you are making lots of dishes for a holiday party this is a great shortcut! Give this recipe a try this holiday season and don’t forget to spill the tea on how they came out! I would love to hear from you!
