Pineapple Walnut Muffins










I was doing stock taking in the kitchen and stumbled upon some yoghurt in the fridge, long forgotten, gosh, I looked at the expiry date, thank goodness it still have a few more days of shelf-life.  So, together with some left-over dried pineapple, I whisked these up and shared them with some friends for tea, much to their delight.

  • 1/4  Teasp. Salt
  • 150 ml low-fat milk/Sugarless Soyabean milk
  • 150 ml Cannola Oil
  • 100 gm Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50 gm Walnuts, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped  -  (Optional)
  • 1 Teasp Vanilla
Method :
  1. Combine yoghurt and chopped pineapple for about 30 minutes to soften the dried fruit.
  2. Sift flour, bicarbonte of soda, and salt, mix well.

Note:
This recipe works well when substituted with mango yoghurt and dried mangoes, hence, "Mango Muffins".

  2. Hi Choong
    Tastes good.....not bad for first attempt. If u want to use butter, just melt it in a pot. But butter is more oily and fattening. U can also use Corn or Olive oil.
