Pumpkin, pineapple and raisin muffins

Another pumpkin muffin recipe... :) This time with grated pumpkin not pumpkin pure as usual. Additionally those muffins were packed with chunks of pineapple and raisins. They were really tasty, sweet, moist with  delicious crust. Unfortunately they were falling apart so we had to eat them with spoons/pastry forks. The recipe comes form "The Australian Women's Weekly. Muffins."

Ingredients for 12 - 16 muffins:
  • 375g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 100g finely grated uncooked pumpkin
  • 4 rings canned pineapple in natural juice, drained and chopped
  • 85g finely chopped raisins
  • 60 ml cream (12% fat or more)
  • 125 ml oil (I used canola oil)
  • 2 eggs
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

In a big bowl mix the flour, baking powder, soda, sugar, pumpkin, pineapple and raisins.

In separate bowl mix cream, oil and eggs. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and combine until just moist.

Spoon the batter into prepared earlier paper cases, 3/4 full. Bake 20 - 25 minutes.
When ready transfer to the wire rack to cool down. 
Enjoy !
