  9. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple juice and milk.

  11. Stir until it's just combined -- don't over mix.
  12. Pour batter into mufin tin over topping mix.

Delicious muffins, just like upside down cake but in muffin form. I also used regular butter. I cut the recipe in half and made 6 muffins with good results. I used pineapple tidbits instead of slices. Thanks for sharing SoupCookie. Made for I recommend tag.

Oh wow these are good! I used butter in place of margarine. They are just sweet enough and just easy enough for my 7yoDD to help me make these. They are really really good! Thank you for a new staple in my kitchen. They did take about 30 minutes to cook through. Made and reviewed for PAC Fall 2008.
