I have a confession to make. These were supposed to be fresh pineapple muffins. My neighborhood grocery store has a special cutter that slices pineapples into circles at the same time that it removes the thick, spiky peel. Don’t you know, the day I was baking these, they didn’t have any fresh pineapples. They almost always have them!

I wanted fresh pineapple because fruit packed in syrup is usually too sweet for me but I took this as a sign to go and peruse the canned goods. Hallelujah! There was actually one option with pineapple slices in unsweetened juice. So, use what you’ve got!

Ingredients
2 cups or 250g all purpose flour
¾ cup or 150g sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Juice (not syrup!) from small can of pineapple plus enough milk to make 1 cup or 240ml
½ cup or 120ml canola oil or other light oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
Small can pineapple (4.9 oz or 139g, drained weight)

Method
Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C and generously grease cups and top of 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.

Drain the pineapple and save the juice in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 cup or 240ml.


Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

Chop the pineapple slices into bits. I like to cut some a bit bigger and save them to decorate the top and I suggest you do the same.


Put the bigger pile into the dry ingredients and stir to coat them so they don't stick together.

In another bowl, whisk together milk, melted butter, vanilla and eggs.


Add all the milk mixture to flour mixture. Gently fold just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Divide your batter relatively evenly between the 12 muffin cups.  Top each with a couple of pieces of chopped pineapple.



Bake 20-25 minutes or until muffins are golden.
