Pineapple is a favorite of mine! I love to eat just pineapple by itself. I love it on pizza and my very favorite is Pineapple Upside Down Cake! However, with just two of us in the house, it is hard to eat a whole cake. So, it seems I rarely have a chance to have it. That is until I discovered Pineapple Upside Down Mug Cakes for two! Now, we can have a fresh pineapple dessert anytime the mood hits!
