“A moist muffin with a brown sugar and cinnamon topping.” - by ACPHIFER
Original recipe yields 16 muffins
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour muffin pans, or line with paper liners.
- In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups flour, white sugar, baking powder and salt. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the reserved juice, egg, milk, and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix just until blended.
- In a separate bowl, stir together the cinnamon, brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 1/4 cup melted butter to make the topping.
- Spoon batter into muffin cups, then spoon crushed pineapple over the batter and sprinkle with the cinnamon topping.
- Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the crown of the muffin comes out clean.

"I love the concept of this muffin! In fact, I assumed the pineapple was in the batter until I read the reviews. Making this even better, I had fresh ripe, sweet pineapple. I put it in my food proce..." See moressor and then squeezed it out using 2 coffee filters and that worked better than the collander. I used 1 packed cup of pineapple. I added to the batter: 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. rum extract, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. This made 6 Texas-size muffins baked at 37 minutes. *careful though, these really poof up, so next time I will use less batter and make 7 giant size muffins. This would also be great with a few marichino cherries chopped with the pineapple, almost like an upside downcake concept. The streusel topping is great. I didn't have enough butter for both topping and batter, so used oil in the batter. They were not dry at all. They look oh so gourmet. I also didn't melt the margarine for the streusel, just cut it in with a pastry blender. These really have a bakery look."
"I made this a little healthier by using whole wheat white flour and organic ingredients. I did not bother saving the pinapple to spoon over the top, I folded the pineapple in the muffin batter with th..." See moree rest of the wet ingredients. This recipe turned out a very pretty muffin that was quite moist, though a little on the sweet side for us. The crumb topping was quite good with the pineapple flavor, we just didn't care for the combination of cinnamon and pineapple. That's not the recipe's issue, it's our own personal taste. I'd like to play with this recipe a bit and see if I can't cut back on the sugar, add a little more pineapple and maybe make this a little healthier as we all really liked pineapple in a muffin. It was quite tasty! EDITED: I have made this three times now without the cinnamon the last two times and we really love these muffins. The flavor is almost like an upside down pineapple cake only without all the work!"
"I loved these muffins and my husband hasn't stopped raving about them! They tasted like the came from a bakery. Mine turned out having almost the texture and taste of a cupcake. I didn't change much b..." See moreut after reading the other reviews, I sliced about 2 Tbsp pineapple chunks which I added to the batter and didn't melt the butter for the topping but used room temp instead. Thanks! **Update - I made these again and without thinking, I melted the butter for the topping like the instructions say. The tops of the muffins came out hard and crunchy but when I used room temp butter the next time, the tops were soft and came out just perfect. So it's the melted butter that makes the difference.**"
