I have recently been lucky enough to receive a huge boxes of my great Aunt’s recipe books. Aunty Lucy appears to have kept every recipe she ever tried.
There are so many here that are amazing, old cut outs from the newspaper, magazines and hundreds in her own handwriting with a friends name at the top that she got the recipe from. I am honoured to be able to keep them alive here on my blog.
In this case this recipe comes from her friend Peg, and I can tell you these are absolutely delicious. The family enjoyed these for lunch, then again at afternoon tea and well, they are all gone! So that is high praise indeed.
The combination of carrot and pineapple is just beautiful, they create a lovely light muffin that is so full of flavour there is no need for a fancy topping or icing.
The ingredients as always are very simple
Plain White Flour
Muffin recipes are always so quick to whip up as usually just a matter of combining the wet ingredients into the dry and that is the case here.
You combine the dry ingredients including the grated carrot and the drained pineapple. The key here is to weigh the pineapple before you drain it.
The original recipe just calls for a small tin of crushed pineapple so I have made an assumption on the size and it was perfect. So measure your pineapple then drain well.
Combine the wet ingredients creating an emulsion of the sugar, oil and eggs, then carefully stir this through the dry ingredients.
All ovens are different but this recipe takes around 18-20 minutes for the muffins to cook through, they spring back to the touch and are golden brown when done. They will freeze well too.
