Pineapple Upside-Down Donuts





Yield 6 donuts

Sweet and buttery, these baked pineapple upside-down donuts are sure to be a hit! Ready in less than 20 minutes.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. Generously grease a doughnut pan; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, pineapple juice, vanilla, melted butter, and egg. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture - being careful not to over mix! Set aside.
  4. Using paper towels, gently pat the pineapple slices dry; set aside. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar in each of the donut molds; break it up evenly around the mold, then place the pineapple over the sugar.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared donut pan (over the pineapple slices); each mold should be filled 3/4 of the way full; you will have leftover batter. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the donuts spring back when lightly pressed. Allow doughnuts to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire wrack to cool for a few more minutes. Serve warm, or set aside until needed.


You will need to slice the pre-cut rings of pineapple in half before using them in this recipe. The slices in the can will be too thick as is, causing an uneven fruit to cake ratio. I find the easiest way to slice the pineapples is using a serrated knife, and going slowly!
