Tropical Muffins Recipe

I entered these muffins at our county fair and won the grand champion award for baked goods. They're so moist, they don't need butter.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons rum extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, sour cream and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in the pineapple, coconut and pecans.
