Pineapple Upside Down Muffins

Recently I took out a box from our spare bedroom that contained my grandmother's recipes. I was searching for good bread recipes. I had just made a fantastic Foccacia bread and I will make it again (and take pictures). Anyway, I know my grandma had many breads, rolls, and muffin recipes. As I flipped through one of her home-made books.

I came across a recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Muffins. They sounded so good that on my grocery list went Crushed pineapples.

I had everything else at home...

They were so good! When they came out of the oven I flip them them over onto a cookie sheet. This is the point where I would change what I did...I just flipped them over, next time I would put the cookie sheet or cooling rack right on top of the muffins and flip them so nothing spilt as much as this first time. Here's how they turned out:

I am going to make these again. It's a nice dessert that doesn't have chocolate in it. One thing I did different than the recipe was added 2 - 3 teaspoons of cinnamon in with the dough.

It's a nice way to make personal signed cakes for a dinner! Try the recipe and I know you'll love it!
