Recipe: Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes (sugar-free)

This weekend, I drove myself crazy looking at about a dozen websites with recipes for delicious looking (and I’m sure even better tasting) cupcakes.  Oh, sweet torture.  Realizing that I needed to behave, I started looking for some “healthy” varieties, if there is such a thing.  Anywho, I ran across a recipe on SkinnyTaste.com for Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes.  Super simple, right?

So we’re at the grocery store, picking out a yellow cake mix to use when DH spots a Pillsbury sugar-free cake mix and asks if we can try using it instead.  Since the pineapple is so sweet, I was game and thus was born our “Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes (sugar-free)”.  Granted, I’ve never had pineapple upside down cake, so it may taste nothing like it.  And maybe it tastes even better with regular cake mix.  We were still pleased and felt that this was a dessert we could probably get away with on Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet as a “once in a while” type of thing (simply due to the fact that pineapple is still on the somewhat naughty list).


Pillsbury sugar-free yellow cake mix
20 oz. can of pineapple chunks in juice (do not drain)
Fat free Cool Whip


Dump the can of pineapple chunks and juice into the cake mix and mix for 2 minutes.  Bake as the box instructs.  When ready to eat, top the cupcake with a dollop of fat free Cool Whip.
