Recipe by Sue Lau
These are sooo moist! Great for breakfast or brunch, and even packing in lunches.

Very versatile and good recipe. They are moist without being dense (like lead moist) as some "carrot cake" like recipes can be. I think this recipe would also make a wonderful 13x9 "snack" cake too. I was left with a half a can of crushed pineapple so I drained it very well and added it to 4oz of cream cheese, a half a stick of butter and about 3 TBL of confectioner sugar to make a butter to go along with the muffins. Very good.
