PINEAPPLE, BANANA AND COCONUT MUFFINS

Pineapple, Banana and Coconut Muffins TSLC

These Pineapple, Banana and Coconut Muffins are good anytime. They make me think of Hawaii and something you would find on a menu there.  I love pineapple and bananas together and the coconut just adds to the taste.  We love these with our coffee in the mornings.  Children will love these as a snack, too.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 (20 ounce can) crushed pineapple in 100% pineapple juice, undrained

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

8 tablespoons butter or 1/2 cup or 1 stick, melted

3 eggs

3 bananas, mashed

1 cup coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, Optional

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.  Pour undrained pineapple into another bowl and add vanilla extract, melted butter, eggs and bananas.  Mix with a spoon.  Fold in coconut and nuts.  Combine pineapple mixture with flour mixture and mix well with a spoon.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.  Fill cups 3/4 full with batter.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Check to make sure they are done as ovens vary.  Makes 24 muffins.  Enjoy!

Note:  These keep well for several days in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the microwave. They could be frozen, too.

IRISH POTATO CANDY

Irish Potato Candy - TSLC (2) - CopyThis Irish Potato Candy is totally different from the potato candy made with potatoes and there are no potatoes in the recipe.   This is called Irish Potato Candy because it resembles small Irish potatoes once it is rolled in cinnamon.  It has nothing to do with Ireland but I make this candy every year for St. Patrick’s Day because we love it.   If you don’t like cinnamon you can use cocoa or coconut.  I usually do some in all three.  I color the coconut green with a drop of food coloring so it still looks good for St. Patrick’s Day. I love grabbing a piece of this candy when I am craving something sweet.

1/4 cup butter or margarine or 4 tablespoons, softened (I soften my butter and cream cheese in the microwave for about 30 seconds)

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 cups powdered sugar

1 cup coconut, shredded or grated

Ground cinnamon (start with 2 tablespoons add more as needed)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream butter and cream cheese with mixer. Add sugar one cup at a time while mixing. Mix in vanilla extract.  Fold in coconut with a spoon and stir well.  Scoop out about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or wax paper. My pieces make about two bites each.  Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle your cinnamon in a shallow pan. (I use a metal pie pan) Remove the candy from the freezer and roll each piece in the ground cinnamon. Coat lightly, just enough to cover.  The small cupcake paper liners are wonderful for this candy.  This makes about 25 pieces of candy. Keep refrigerated.   Enjoy!

Note:  If using cocoa instead of cinnamon use about the same amount and coat the same way.  If using coconut, I put a cup of coconut and add a drop of green food coloring until you get the color you like.
