Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins

Winter 2004, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (137 votes)

Glistening like sticky buns, these unusual muffins are packed with wholesome ingredients--vegetables, fruit and whole grains--so you can feel good about serving them to your family.

A bit fussy to make, but not overly so and very well received by my family. Did cut sugar in half (plenty of sweet with pineapple and raisins) and substituted allspice (only 1 tsp) for cinnamon as a couple of family members dislike strong spice taste, especially cinnamon. Will definitely make again.

Although I greased the muffin tins well, the muffins stuck to the bottom of the pan and totally fell apart when I tried to get them out.

They do taste good, however I would cut the sugar in half.
I won't make them again.

I used applesauce instead of oil in recipe and it turned out fine. It reduced the fat content. Still I think the sugar could be cut down and I will do this next time. My husband loves sticky buns and said these just as good. That is a wonderful comment from someone I have to force to eat healthly

Scrumptious!!

Just made these with my five year old and they are delicious!! Lots of ingredients, but well worth it. Will make a great grab and go breakfast as we rush off to school. We swapped out the raisins and nuts in the batter for dried cherries and diced dried apricots because that's what my son loves and they are a perfect combination of sweet, tart and hearty.
