For some reason I have pineapple on the brain. I absolutely love it and eat it all the time. So today I went hunting for a pineapple treat to try later.
In my searching, I stumbled across this one claiming to make a perfect pineapple cake in less than 10 minutes. Granted, you'd have to use the microwave and would need a microwave safe bundt pan (silicone would work). Personally I think it sounds a little too good to be true, seems like you might as well put it in the oven for twice the time... Unfortunately, I can't actually test this one out because, believe it or not, I don't actually have a microwave (SF kitchen = tiny no counter space). However it seems like you would end up with a pretty standard pineapple upside down cake. So, if you've got a microwave, and need dessert in less than 10 minutes, why don't you give this 9 Minute Microwave Pineapple Cake a try? Then once you've tested it out, let us all know how the outcome was! For the recipe,
6 ounce sliced pineapple
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 tsp butter
6 maraschino cherries
1/2 box white cake mix
Using a bundt microwave pan, spray with non stick vegetable spray. Melt butter and pour into bunt pan. Spread brown sugar in bottom of pan on butter. Place pineapple slices around on top of brown sugar. Save the juice. Slice the cherries and place in and around the pineapple slices. Mix pineapple juice and one egg in the half of boxed cake mix. Pour over pineapple slices, cherries and brown sugar. Bake in microwave on high for 9 minutes on turn table. If you don't have a turn table, turn 1/4 turn every 3 minutes.
