Only 4 inches of snow this time…
and I have just come inside from sweeping the snow off my car. It is cold and my fingers are frozen right through my gloves. There is a pretty brisk wind blowing, but hey guys, right this minute there is only 23 days, 9 hours, 50 minutes and 9 seconds till the first day of Spring. It is pretty outside this morning. The sun is shining brightly after the storm and everything is white again.
I am planning to make some pineapple muffins this morning. Twin, do you remember when I gave you the recipe and you had a big hit with them? This time I will be trying my new big muffin pan that my daughter got me for Christmas. She even found me some paper liners to fit the pan. I also plan to put a streusel topping on them today.
With mixer cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and crushed pineapple. Mix well. Mix the flour, salt and baking powder together. Add to first mixture mixing well. Fill muffin tins lined with paper or sprayed with cooking spray 2/3 full. Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for 18 – 20 minutes or test with toothpick. Makes about 2 dozen small or about 1 dozen large.
May also be baked in mini loaf pans or large muffin tins with paper liners or sprayed with cooking spray. Test for doneness with toothpick after 20 – 25 minutes. May be glazed or frosted or you may put a streusel topping on before baking.
Before I make the muffins I am coming around to visit you all.
