Whenever you prepare muffins, make sure you prepare these quick ,easy and super Soft and moist Pineapple Muffins.
Cup cakes or muffins is one of the teatime snack enjoyed almost everyday in my house . Whenever we go to walmart or any grocery store, my son asks for them, and since I am a bit health conscious mom, I try to keep my family away from preservatives or unhealthy food served outside and make sure that my family gets the most from what they eat. If you prepare any food whether it is dessert or something else at home, you have full control on what and how much of the ingredients to mix in , so that you can keep a track of the calories you consume.
The other day, we got this pineapple from the grocery store, and it was not so sweet to taste. So I made pineapple sasav (Pineapple gravy) from half of it and was thinking about what to do of the other half. I wanted to make some smoothies or juices but then changed my mind and thought, why not bake some muffins for snacks. Believe me, while the muffins were baking, my kitchen was full of pineapple aroma and my son asking every now and then when they will be ready. Didn’t even give me proper time for my photo shoot . Soon I finished my photo shoot, he gulped down 4 of them.
What else a mom want when her kid enjoys what she cooks.
Though I used fresh pineapple for these muffins, tinned crushed pineapple can also be used for it. Make sure you grind them well in the grinder. So here is the quick and easy recipe for super moist pineapple muffins.
