These low fat cupcakes are moist and delicious and you won’t believe how easy they are to make. All it takes is a box of yellow cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple; no eggs, no oil or butter needed!!

You can simply eat them with Cool Whip or make them blissful as I did here with my pineapple fluff cream cheese frosting!

I always laugh when I have to come up with names for recipes. I could havce simply called them Pineapple cupcakes, but I think they are so much more with this topping. You can make the cupcakes a day ahead and the topping as well which should be stored in the refrigerator. Once you top them with the frosting they should be eaten within a few hours.

  1. So even though the cake mix box says to mix eggs and butter you don’t do that? 

  2. are these mini cupcakes or full size cupcakes?

  3. Hi. Sadly, the SP are 4, not 2 as posted. And thats just for the cupcake. That being said, TOTALLY WORTH IT! I think I ate 8 SP in batter alone 8-O. But so yummy!

  4. These cupcakes taste amazing and are insanely easy to make.  I made them in two batches since I only had one tin for 12 cupcakes.  The cake mix (Supermoist) gave a range of times (12 – 17 mins) and temperatures (325 for lighter pans/350 for darker pans/glass).   I used light pans with cupcake liners.  The first batch I cooked at 325 for 15 mins the second at 350 for 16 mins.  The first batch fell a little in the middle and was a tad underdone, the second bath puffed right up and looked great – so if I do it again I will definitely tend towards the higher temperature oven and leaving them in a little longer.  Also as the batter sat in the bowl for the second batch while the first batch cooked it seemed to rise a little which might have helped with the puffiness of the second batch.  I might let the batter sit for 10 mins or so in the bowl if I do it again.  Great easy recipe for easter. 

  5. The trick for a thick pineapple icing……..Make the icing in advance and refrigerate in a covered bowl overnight. It becomes much thicker and is real easy to spread. Also, this icing recipe makes a great dip for fresh pineapple and strawberries. It stays fresh in the refrigerator for a week in a covered bowl.

  6. Hi. These look fantastic! Great dessert for Easter. Do you have the freestyle smart points value?

  7. I am going to make these with my Holstein treat maker machine to see how they come out. I wonder if I put 1/4 tsp brown sugar and tsp crushed pineapple with a diced cherry if they will come out like little pineapple upside down treats. We’ll see.

  8. I can’t find the size cake mix that’s yiur recipe calls for.  I can only find 15.25 oz.  Should I just cut back on the pineapple?

  10. could you sub Truwhip instead of fluff?

  11. How many smart points? Thank you, love all of your recipes!

  12. I made these cupcakes and the icing last night and everyone loved them. Its great that they are a low fat recipe. I did make one change, I used a box of pineapple cake mix instead of yellow cake mix. I think next time I am either going to put the drained crushed pineapple in my magic bullet first or just leave it out of the recipe. I didn’t like how chunky the icing was. It kept clogging the pastry bag tip and I couldn’t make the icing pretty. I think I will cut pieces of a pineapple ring and garnish the top of each cupcake.

  14. I haven't eaten these yet but the batter tasted amazing! I am so excited to take these into my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow. It's our temporary leaders last day and she mentioned wishing someone would bring her cake lol!

    I used Pillsbury Sugar Free Classic Yellow cake (because it is what I had and I like the way it tastes) and it makes the cupcakes without icing 2 points plus, and the cupcake with icing 3 points plus total.

    Thank you for these amazing recipes. You really help me stay on plan by keeping my food inspired. I was down 150.2 pounds on Weight Watchers as of last week and I am excited to weigh in tomorrow! (I'll put the cupcakes down first.)

  15. Hi Gina, I made these cupcakes tonight and my boys loved them, they were amazing!!

  16. Question, I have had your pina colada cupcakes, and love them, but I absolutely love cherry pineapple dump cake. Do you think you could make cupcakes like that? Would you still use a whole can of the crushed pineapple? Or would you use half a can of crushed pineapple and half a can of cherry pie filling? I'm trying to figure out how I could make that work. 🙂

  17. Made these today for a birthday party at work. They were delicious and everyone loved them! Thanks for the great recipes Gina!

  18. I made these last week , and they were delicious , I didn't make the icing but they were so good that I ate more than one at a time 🙁

  19. These are delicious and moist! One of my favorite sweets from your site. Thank you and keep doing what you do, I love your site and don't know what I'd do without it!
