These pineapple cupcakes are moist, buttery, and loaded with crushed pineapple. They are paired perfectly with coconut buttercream for a tropical treat.
I am a huge fan of fruity desserts. So it should come as no surprise that I want to fruit in all my desserts. It’s a habit that I can’t control.
These pineapple cupcakes have been on my mind for quite some time now. I made batch after batch to develop the best recipe possible. And these are fabulous!
It took me countless days to achieve a moist, buttery cupcake that was full of crushed pineapple and made completely from scratch. I’d seen recipes that called for box cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple. Yeah, it’s simple and probably delicious but you know how we do it here. We bake from scratch whenever possible.
I decided to top these pineapple cupcakes with the whipped coconut buttercream frosting that I shared with you on Wednesday. Why? Because it was darn good, that’s why. A tender pineapple-y cupcake with a poof of silky coconut buttercream. What more could you ask for?
Stop what you are doing right now and go bake these cupcakes. It will be the best 30 minutes you’ve ever spent. They are amazing!
