Pineapple Banana Muffins

Pineapple Banana Muffins
Recipe by Dragon

I really like the tropical flavour of these moist muffins but it's the addition of the cinnamon and ginger that really takes them to another level...the awesome level. That's right, I said the "awesome level". ;) Enjoy!

Makes: 12

2 1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
2/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup pineapple, chopped (reserve 12 chunks for garnish)
3 tablespoons crystalized sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease muffin tin.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ginger.

3. Beat together bananas, eggs, brown sugar, butter, lemon juice and vanilla until blended.

4. Stir in dry ingredients until blended. Stir in pineapple until just combined (over mixing will dry out the muffins). Spoon into prepared muffin cups, dividing batter equally.

5. Top each muffin with a pineapple chunk then sprinkle the crystalized sugar evenly over the muffins.

6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.

As Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers likes to point out, you can rock for good, or you can rock for awesome.

You mention adding lemon juice, but no amount is listed in ingredients list.
