Ingredients

  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Drain pineapple, reserving 1-2 tablespoons syrup.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Add to cream cheese mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition. Fold in pineapple.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

"This muffin is very moist and flavorful. I did not frost them to save on calories.

If you like pineapple, this muffin is for you!"
