Boy these are wonderful muffins! Loved the addition of the pineapple juice; the flavor is subtle but you can tell it's there, great with the honey and raisins. I made half a batch and got 12 good-sized muffins. Mine stuck to the paper liners a bit so next time I will use foil liners or just grease the muffin pan. Thanks for sharing a keeper!
These muffins are really great, & although I did allow my other half to share at one of his meetings, I kept 6 of them just for us & the 2nd day I thought they were even better! Really enjoyed the raisins & pineapple juice in these & will happily make them again & I suspect they will keep well in the freezer, too (will have to check that out next time around)! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I love to make new meals and try new things; it is hard though because my husband is picky when it comes to veggies (and hates seafood); If it were up to him we would have baked-bread crumb chicken and white rice at least one meal a day! Over the past couple years with zaar, I have found tons of new recipes my family normally wouldn’t eat but have been happily surprised with new favorites.</strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>I love to join in all of the tag games; I haven't been as present as I would like, but as soon as my Jeff is back from working in Ohio I will be back in full tagging mode! </strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>Cooking is my hobby and passion, I always like to host the family get togethers and volunteer for the potluck dishes.
