These are better than pineapple upside cake!! The topping is yummy. And they are good cold too. I will keep this recipe handy. Thanks Diana, for posting!
These tasted great, especially with the addition of ginger, but I found the topping was tricky when made with fresh pineapple. As soon as I'd mixed it up I knew it was too runny to stand on its own as a topping so I squeezed some of the water out. Even then, it made the paper muffin cups very soggy and the bottoms fell out of the cups as I was taking the muffins out to cool. Obviously, I'm not sure how this might change if made with canned pineapple but if you're using fresh I'd say they almost need to be eaten right away, while warm, because the topping is just too runny to stay in one place on the top of the muffins.
