How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, ginger, salt and baking soda in bowl. Add 1/4 cup butter, yogurt and egg; mix well.

  4. STEP 4

    Spoon batter over topping mixture in muffin cups. Bake 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Cool 3 minutes. Immediately turn onto serving plate.

  5. STEP 5

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

- 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.

Tip #3

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