Preparation Instructions

  1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Coat 12 muffin cups generously with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. MICROWAVE butter in small microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 30 to 45 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar. Divide mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup pineapple juice, adding water if necessary. Place 1 maraschino cherry half, rounded side down, on brown sugar mixture in center of each muffin cup. Arrange 5 pineapple pieces around cherry half in each muffin cup to resemble a flower. Sprinkle coconut evenly into each cup. Set aside.

Add pancake mix and reserved pineapple juice; mix well. Fold in egg whites. Fold in melted butter and vanilla. Spoon evenly into muffin cups.
  4. BAKE 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 2 minutes. Loosen edges of cake from sides of muffin cups. Immediately turn out onto a rimmed baking sheet. Spoon any topping mixture remaining in muffin cups over tops of mini cakes. Best served warm.
