Dole Whip Cupcakes – Yummy!

dole whip cc

The Dole Whip is a popular snack with the Disney community. I admit I’m not really a fan. I am a fan of the Dole Whip with rum available in Epcot, but the regular Dole Whip offered in other spots isn’t something I will go out of  my way for. I do think I would go out of my way for these cupcakes too! Easy to make and delicious!

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 Cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 TBSP pineapple  extract

Cupcake Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line cupcake pan with paper liners.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.
  • Beat butter on high for 30 seconds.
  • Add sugar, vanilla and pineapple extract to the butter until well combined.
  • Add egg whites, one at a time, mixing after each.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each.
  • Add  flour mixture to the wet mixture; alternating with the buttermilk on low speed until it is thoroughly blended.
  • Scoop the batter into the lined cupcake holders till 2/3 filled.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes.
  • Remove to a wire rack until fully cooled.


Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Butter (room temp)
  • 4 + Cup Powdered sugar
  • 4 TBSP Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp pineapple extract
  • Several small pineapple wedges

Frosting Directions:

  • Beat butter until creamed.
  • Add powdered sugar, 1/2 Cup at a time.
  • Cream both until light and creamy.
  • If not creaming slowly add a little whipping cream.
  • Mix the pineapple extract with the butter and powdered sugar.
  • Test to see if the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak.
  • Test by pulling out a spoonful of frosting holding it upside down. If it doesn’t drop then your frosting is done.
    If not add 1/2 Cup powdered sugar. Test again to make sure the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak.
  • Spoon frosting into a pastry bag with a frosting tip.
  • Twist open end to push frosting to the tip.
  • Frost cupcakes.
  • Place a small pineapple wedge on top of the frosted cupcake.

ok just got back from the cake decorating store. I also had a hard time finding pineapple extract. they have pineapple oil which they use to flavor things with so I will give it a try. I did find some on amazon but figured I would try the recipe first (the oil is super concentrated and only cost me 3 bucks) if it works I may stick with that option as opposed to 8 bucks plus shipping. thanks jan

Thanks! I'm not sure if we have a Fresh market nearby so I bought some pineapple juice. I'm going to bake them tonight! :)

We love Dole Whips and I can't wait to try this recipe! Where did you find pineapple extract? Is there a substitute for it? Thanks!

Fresh Market carries it. You can use a pineapple juice reduction by heating pineapple juice until it reduces to the desired amount or use crushed pineapple. It's obviously easier to find pineapple extract :)
