Recipe Tips

- Pat pineapple dry on paper towels to remove excess moisture.

- Baking soda, in addition to baking powder, is used for leavening quick breads that include acidic ingredients such as brown sugar, molasses, yogurt, sour cream or buttermilk. The alkaline baking soda reacts with these acidic ingredients to create bubbles of carbon dioxide causing the batter to rise.

- If using shallow muffin pan, recipe will make 15 mini cakes. Bake 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

I really liked the recipe. The small size makes them guilt-free. My son thought they were awesome, even "without the whipped cream!"
