35 cupcakes


  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¼ cup brandy, or as needed, divided

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon brandy


  • 1 (15 ounce) can cream of coconut

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 35 cupcake cups with paper liners.

  2. Beat sugar, butter, and oil together in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in pineapple, milk, and 1/4 cup brandy.

  3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in another bowl. Add slowly to the sugar mixture, beating with an electric hand mixer to get a light, fluffy batter.

  4. Spoon batter into the cupcake liners, leaving about 1/8 inch of each liner free (this cake doesn't rise a lot).

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 17 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven and immediately spoon 1 teaspoon of brandy over the top of each cupcake; let seep into the cake. Let cool completely.

  7. Beat cream of coconut and cream cheese together with an electric mixer until it is lump-free. Frost cooled cupcakes.
