Pineapple Muffins

Pineapple Muffins: A light, delicately textured muffin made with fresh pineapple and flavored with lemon.

Fresh pineapple, lemon zest and lemon extract give these light, delicately textured muffins a bright, tropical flavor.

Pineapple Muffins

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, cut into 1/4 inch pieces

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare muffin tins by lightly greasing each cup (recipe makes 12 regular-sized muffins).

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat the egg, milk and lemon extract until frothy. Add the butter and lemon zest, combine well and stir in the pineapple. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients, combine thoroughly, but don't over mix.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins (approximately 1/3 cup each) and bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

These were lovely! Although I didn't have any lemon extract, I just zested a whole lemon and did a light drizzle of fresh lemon/icing sugar glaze on top. Will make again.

Delicious! I too didn't have lemon extract and used the zest of a whole lemon. I also used a bit of cinnamon in the recipe for my flavour, YUMMY!

I seriously messed this recipe up and it still turned out well enough. I used dairy free milk and coconut oil, used fresh pineapple (3/4 of one). I didn't fully melt the oil, I mixed all the dry ingredients into the wet without doing it ahead of's just been one of those days. I will certainly make this again and follow the recipe instructions fully with my dairy free subs.

made these using 1 cup regular flour and 1 cup whole wheat - super light and fluffy! the fresh pineapple chunks are amazing when still warm!!

The muffins turned out well; attractive but wished I had read the remarks. It definitely needs the cinnamon/sugar topping.
