My husband loves all things pineapple. It can't have coconut in it or nuts (that he knows of) heehee, just pineapple. Sometimes it's hard to find a recipe like that. I found this on a forum and snatched it up! To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
What's not to love, pineapple , sour cream, vanilla pudding and a nice little topping that was my contribution. You see I've got this thing about naked muffins. I think muffins should have a little "something" on top, it makes them pretty. I was thinking about putting pecans in these but didn't have any, besides that I'd have to pulverize them so Sam couldn't see them. I didn't have an 8 oz can of crushed pineapple, what I had was a 20 ounce can of chunks so I put half the can in the food processor with some juice and made my own crushed pineapple. These little guys even looked good before they were baked! These were so soft after they were baked. Glorious little treasures!
