Pineapple Carrot Raisin Muffins

Pineapple Carrot Raisin Muffins created by plum pie

My father got muffins from a tenant of his (who happens to be a chef). My mom made my dad ask the chef if he would write down the recipe for her Then, My mom asked if I would make it, and I agreed with a sort of "ehhh, pineapple??" attitude. haha. Well, it's delicious! It's light and sweet. and I baked mine until they sort of got crsip around the edges (crunchy muffin tops are lovely in my opinion). The original recipe calls for walnuts, but I personally use chopped almonds instead.

    Was looking for something to use up some crushed pineapple and wow did I find a great one. I had one fresh from the oven and loved the crisp crust and all the flavors but was a bit sweet. I may try half pineapple and half apple. Will try one cold to see the difference, what was wonderful warm.

    I made this for a bake sale - they loved it. I made it for Bible Study - they loved it. I made it for my husband - he loved it. Get the idea?
