Pineapple Muffins

Winters have finally found there way into Karachi and although temperature has not fallen below 10 degrees, Karachiites are having good time enjoying the much awaited chilly breeze. 

Winters and baking has a strange connection. I think baking is much more fun on a cold day and the warmth of the oven in the kitchen makes one feel so cozy. Sunday began with a cloudy weather and cold breeze and as soon as I got out of bed I knew I had to bake something today and what could have been better than freshly baked muffins for the breakfast with entire family.

So I set up my work station and started making muffins.

Cream butter and sugar in a bowl. Add eggs and beat more.

Sift together flour and baking powder and beat with the butter mixture. Add vanilla essence and mix some more.

Line muffin pan with muffin cases and fill each case 2/3rd full. Stick a large chunk of pineapple in the middle of each case.

And bake in preheated oven at 190 degrees for 35 minutes or until the muffins start taking a brownish color.

Once they have cooled, prick few holes using a toothpick and drizzle pineapple juice on each muffin with the help of a spoon. 

In the end drizzle molten white chocolate if you wish to but that's completely optional.

As I am writing this post, I am enjoying a warmed muffin with peppermint tea and trust me it really does taste amazing!

Winter is my favorite season of the year. Which one is yours?

  1. I have never tasted a pineapple muffin before! Love the idea of this recipe.

  2. These look delicious. I love pineapple. Winter is my least fave season, it's wicked cold here in Ontario. I prefer summer.

  3. Pineapple muffins! That sounds delicious. I made pineapple cake which I will share next week (and remember, I am not a baker so this is rare! lol). I should try this muffin next time! Kids love pineapples so it's perfect!

  4. Wow, that looks awesome! Love it, cannot wait to try it :)
