Recipe by Leslie in Texas

Pineapple is the surprise ingredient in this Caribbean-style cornbread! Originally from a food section newspaper article about a restaurant in Anguilla. It's delicious with ham and will go well with summer barbeques!

I loved this recipe. I used Jiffy cornbread mix as directed then add a half a can of creamed corn , half can of crushed pineapple the small can and it turned out great. I even made a pineapple honey butter to go with the muffins I used 2 soften sticks of butter some honey , nutmeg,cinnamon and the rest of the pineapple make sure and drain pineapple really good for the butter. This was really good I think it would be good with green chilies added to it also.
