Pineapple Muffins With Coconut and Brown Sugar Topping

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

I was in the mood for pineapple and wanted to make some muffins and found few such combinations on this site. I did a quick search and found this on About.com, under the heading Southern U.S. Cuisine, from Diana Rattray. I really liked these, they are flavorful and not overly sweet. I thought they might need a little something and I added some allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping.
