Yup yup…just 3 ingredients!
Self rising flour, sugar and crushed pineapple. I’m all about the time hacks…including not pulling out all.the.baking.things. when you can use self-rising flour instead! Self-rising flour works wonderfully in many recipes, especially this one. I have not experimented with other sweeteners, but think that applesauce or coconut sugar would be options to try.
Also, this is a great and quick batter that your kiddos could mix up…and then easy enough to get ready for the oven. Loving these afternoon snack/dessert muffins! <3
3-Ingredient Pineapple Muffins
Yield – 12 servings
Preparation Time – 10 minutes
Cooking Time – 20 minutes
- 2 cups self rising flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cups fresh pineapple (mashed, including juice) OR 1 – 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, undrained
- 12-14 small chunks of fresh pineapple, optional
- Preheat oven to 325 F. and line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
- Combine the first three ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
- Scoop into prepared muffin tins and fill 2/3 full. Try not to overfill as these will rise well.
- Place 1 fresh pineapple chunk in the center of each muffin. It does not have to be covered with batter, as the batter will rise and cover the pineapple while booking. This is an optional step.
- Bake for 20 minutes until done and lightly browned. Cool before serving.
- Serve 3 Ingredient Pineapple Muffins as a tasty afternoon treat or dessert!
Make your own self-rising flour by adding 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt to each cup of required flour. So for this recipe, use 2 cups AP flour, 3 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt.
