Today, I have a recipe for semi-sweet carrot pineapple muffins. They are moist and tender. You will absolutely enjoy these muffins with tea during breakfast or have them as a quick snack during the day. They are very easy to make.
Muffins are Quick Breads
Muffins are just enjoyable. There are so many varieties; you can never get bored. They can be cake-like, more like little sweet quick breads, cheesy, filled with a jam, marmalade, or chocolate, and made with any type of fruit or combination of grain. They are just perfect and easy to make.
I find that all quick breads are, as the name suggest, hassle free. In a little while you can whip up a dozen of these tasty muffins. No kneading, no waiting for it to rest, and no mess. It's easy to make and easy to clean up.

for some extra batter we had remaining.
First you take some foil and form it around the bottom of a glass.
Voila, all you do is place the muffin cups and fill with the batter.
Bake in oven 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F
