Carrot Pineapple Muffin Recipe

Carrot Pineapple Muffins

Not many think of tropical fruit and root vegetable as a winning combo. Until they try this muffin, that is. Moist, flavorful and sporting just a touch of spice, this recipe brings carrots and pineapple to the table in the most agreeable way.

A healthy dollop of cream cheese frosting offers the perfect texture for such light and tasty treat while golden raisins add small bursts of flavor. Guests love this following a hearty breakfast of sourdough bake. Let us know how you serve it!
