Pineapple Buttermilk Muffins Recipe


Several years ago I got this recipe out of one of the many vintage cookbooks that I own. I tweaked it a little bit to bring it into modern times and it is one that I enjoy making often for my family. We really like having them during the fall and holiday seasons.

Pineapple Buttermilk Muffins Recipe

3 strips bacon
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup crushed pineapples, drained
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup fresh buttermilk
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 c. bacon drippings

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease muffin tins. Fry bacon until crisp. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Add cornmeal and pineapple. Put the eggs, buttermilk, sugar and drippings into a blender, cover and mix until smooth. Pour into flour mixture and stir only until flour is moistened. Fill prepared muffin tins 2/3 full. Crumble crisp bacon on top of each muffin. Bake for 15-20 mins or until done. Makes 12.

You can omit the crumbled bacon on top of the muffins if you want, that's entirely up to you.

Thanks alot for the welcoming comment.

I love cornmeal, so these muffins look very interesting. How does the bacon taste mix with the pineapple?

Thanks for the comment. Your blog is wonderful and a nice partner for your Tupperware.I imagine bacon with pineapple is really good. I love this sandwhich called toast Hawaii wioth ham and pineapple. It works!
