Reviews for Sweet Pineapple Muffins
Sort By :
I found 2 cups sugar too sweet. I reduced sugar to 1-1/2 cup. I used 1 large can crushed pineapple less 1/4 cup juice and added 3/4 tsp nutmeg for flavoring with dry ingredients. I also add 1/2 cup walnuts. These are our favorites. I think the complaints of these muffins being flat may be too much juice is added.
I've made these muffins many times, but I don't add about 1/3 of the pineapple juice. The muffins always come out a bit flatter than other muffins, but they are still attractive and they taste wonderful. My family and friends love them, they are one of our favorites!
I followed the recipe and mine didn't rise at all. In fact, they overflowed the muffin tins and sank in the centers. I, too, think it may have had something to do with the amount of juice except the batter wasn't runny to begin with.
The muffins tasted wonderful; however, they did not raise as they should. Has anyone else had that problem? Perhaps the pineapple should have been drained and only part of the juice added? Suggestions???
