Is there anything more welcoming than the smell of pineapple upside down cake baking in the oven? This dessert is a classic for a reason – it’s simple to make, and always delicious. And now, you can make it even easier with your air fryer. Just follow these simple steps, and you’ll have a yummy dessert ready to enjoy in no time!
1 package cake mix yellow or white
ingredients to make the cake mix (per package)
2 tablespoons butter melted
20 ounces canned pineapple
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 maraschino cherries
Start by spraying your air fryer safe pan with non-stick cooking spray. Then melt the butter in the microwave, pour it on the bottom, and then sprinkle the brown sugar on the bottom.
Then prepare the cake mix.
Use the instructions on the cake mix box, and prepare the cake mix, as directed. Each cake mix will be different, mine had eggs, water, and oil.
Then place the pineapples down (in my second cake, I had lots of batters) and added the cherries, for a more traditional upside-down pineapple cake.
Pour the cake mix (prepared) directly over it.
Place the cake (uncooked) into the air fryer basket, bake for 320 degrees F, for 25 minutes. Once the timer goes off, use a toothpick and stick it directly in the middle to see if it’s cooked or not. If it’s cook, remove. If it does not add another 5 minutes. Until it’s cooked in the middle.
Let cool, before you flip it.
