The addition of the pineapple along with the zucchini make these muffins a great breakfast treat.  The allspice and nutmeg add a wonderful taste that makes you want to enjoy these muffins with coffee in the mornings.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarine or 2 sticks or 16 tablespoons, melted
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup raisins or nuts, optional
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, allspice,  nutmeg and salt in a large bowl with a whisk.  Add eggs, butter,  pineapple, zucchini and vanilla and mix well with a spoon. Fold in nuts or raisins.   Spray muffin tins and fill 3/4 full with muffin mixture. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 35 to 40 minutes until brown on top.  (Note:  I used a large size muffin tins for large muffins and got 8 muffins.  You will get 12 to 16 using the smaller tins depending on how full you fill them.)
This is a spicy and moist muffin.  Enjoy!

  4. Oh my goodness – I made a double batch tonight to take to work and my co-workers are going to LOVE these – I added a cup of white chips and subbed apple pie spice for the allspice and nutmeg because that was what I had in the pantry – the muffins were moist with delicate flavors…you really must try these. I got 36 muffins from a double batch – and I know there won’t be any leftovers! Thank you, Southern Lady – I will be following you for MORE delicious recipes!!!
