2/3 cup brown sugar (packed)

2 eggs

Pinch of salt

I used a 6-Cup Jumbo Muffin Pan


– Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

– Spray muffin tin
– Pour topping into muffin tin first. Place pineapple ring in and put a cherry in the center
– Next pour in your cake batter.
– Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes. Poke with toothpicks, when you can pull them out clean they should be done.
