  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • ½ cup pineapple juice (fresh if you can get enough from your pineapple)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Generously spray mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Place one cherry into the center of each cup.
  3. In a food processor, combine pineapple, brown sugar and melted butter.  Pulse  8-10 times until everything is mixed and pineapple is chopped up.
  4. Spoon pineapple mixture into cups using about 2 teaspoons of mixture per cup.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add applesauce, juice, egg and vanilla to the flour mixture and blend, using a mixer, until smooth.
  6. Spoon batter over top of the pineapples and cherry in the cups.
