If you have been following my blog for any length of time, I don't think its a secret that muffins are one of my favorite things to bake (and eat!). But I bet you probably didn't know that carrot muffins are my absolute favorite muffin. Back when I was working, I would
often always stop for a coffee and muffin at McDonalds in the mornings (who can beat their price?!) and I would always, always get the carrot muffin.
Being the carrot muffin connoisseur that I am, I already have a recipe on my site for Carrot Cupcakes, which are essentially just carrot muffins with frosting - YUM! These carrot pineapple muffins were adapted from that recipe and they bring such a unique tropical twist to a classic carrot muffin. They are so easy to make, and they are a great snack, breakfast, or even dessert!
These Carrot Pineapple Muffins are simple to make. The batter is a very thick, but this is normal because most of the liquid component of this recipe is hiding in the carrots and pineapple. too much extra moisture added would result in dense, soggy muffins, and no one wants that!
Step 1: in a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon and set aside
Step 2: in a large bowl, beat the oil, eggs, yogurt, brown sugar and vanilla together until fully incorporated. Stir in the pineapple tidbits
Step 3: add the flour mixture to the oil mixture in 3 additions, stirring well after each addition.
Step 4: carefully fold in the shredded carrots and raisins - do not over mix! Batter should be very thick and sticky
Step 5: divide the batter evenly into a greased or lined muffin tray, and bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Preheat oven to 350 F, grease or line muffin tray and set aside
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon and set aside
in a large bowl, beat the oil, eggs, yogurt, brown sugar and vanilla together until fully incorporated. Stir in the pineapple tidbits
Add the flour mixture to the oil mixture in 3 separate additions, stirring well after each addition (be careful not to over-mix!)
Carefully fold in the carrots and raisins until evenly distributed - batter will be very thick and sticky
Divide the batter into prepared muffin tins, filling up each liner to the top
Bake in preheated oven 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean
Allow to cool in pan for several minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling
