Pineapple Coconut Muffins


Well who doesnt like Pineapples ? I bet there aren’t that many who dislike.

I for one like them a lot….I have prepared Pineapple Cake few times before, so I decided to go for muffins.

The muffins turned out very delicious, the soft sweet pineapple chunks in every bite made this muffin extra good!!

Pineapple Coconut Muffins


1 Cup All Purpose Flour

2 Tsp Baking Powder

2-3 Tbsp Sweetened Coconut Flakes

1/2 Cup Sugar

1/4 Cup Buttermilk

1/4 Cup Oil

1 Egg

2-3 Tbsp Milk

1/2 – 3/4 Cup Pineapple chunks

2 Tbsp Sliced Almonds(Optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degree Farenheit.

Sieve the flour with the baking powder.

Mix in sugar & sweetened coconut.

In a separate bowl beat the egg, oil, buttermilk together until well blended. 

Slowly add the flour mixture to the above mixture little at a time along with little milk & blend well until all the flour and milk is mixed in.

Chop the Pineapple into smaller chunks if big.

Add in the pineapple to the flour mixture and mix well.

Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan.

Sprinkle some sliced almonds on the top.

Bake for 20-30 mins or until a knife inserted at the center of a muffin comes clean.

Enjoy them over a hot cuppa tea like I did!!

    Hi aruna,
    Thx for trying out my chemmeen biriyani and letting me know abiut it…..I know, we like it much too….Thx for ur compliments….

    Then about ur query in chicken biriyani, I used the shop bought garam masala. I am not sure which brand i bought, but i guess it is the eastern garam masala. My mom makes home made masala, which tastes almost same.I can get u her garam masala ingredients if u want to 🙂

    By the way, i too like pineapple in my desserts cakes. I love pineapple upside down cake too:)…urs looks fabulous.
