How to make it

  • Set rack at the middle level in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  • Butter and flour 2 (12 muffin) muffin tins.
  • Combine 4 tablespoons pineapple juice, sugar, and butter over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Combine the eggs, egg yolk, milk, pineapple juice, rum and vanilla extract. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter mixture then add half the milk mixture. Continue to alternate beginning and ending with flour mixture. Scape the bowl and beater often.
  • Pour about 1 tablespoon of the caramel into prepared muffin tins and top with pineapple rings. Pour batter over the pineapple and smooth top with a spoon. Bake cakes about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean.
  • Cool in pans on rack for 5 minutes, then turn out onto parchment paper and let cool completely.
  • Garnish with fresh whipped cream and fresh cherry with stem if desired.
