Pineapple Muffins

These are slightly sweet muffins, which I can guarantee will disappear quickly when removed from the oven !

Pineapple Muffin Recipe

1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drain and reserve juice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup milk

Combine 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and 2 Tbsp. melted butter, set aside. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend together milk, butter and egg, pour into dry ingredients and stir until just moistened.

Spoon batter into greased and floured muffin tin, filling half full. Spoon pineapple (about 1 heaping tsp.) over batter and sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire rack.

These sound like they would taste like a "Pineapple Upside-Down Cake" but packed into a muffin ! Yummy!!
