These pineapple orange muffins are tropical tasting and topped with toasted pecans and an orange glaze.
Want to know how to drive yourself crazy?
Go to the mall on a weekend, one week before Christmas.
Granted, I kind of did this to myself by procrastinating for this long but when the chaos begins before even parking the car because there’s not a single spot to be found in the Target parking lot, you know you’re in for a doozy. And by doozy I mean 2 hours of mumbling every curse word under the sun as you weave in and out of people who decide to just STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AISLE without bothering to realize they’re in everyone’s way. NBD, it’s fine. Just don’t look at me like I’m the rude one when I hit you in the side with my bags full of Christmas cheer. By accident of course.
If I actually had real liquor in the house and not just apricot brandy, grand marnier, and orange citroen for those random baking episodes once a year, I would’ve been throwing back a shot or two when I came home.
Instead, I ate a muffin.
These are the result of that impulsive pineapple purchase the other day and not a bad way to use up the extra fruit if I do say so myself.
They’re moist, full of fruit and orange flavor with some toasted pecans for texture and an orange glaze on top. The only way to make them even better would be eating one with a tropical smoothie.
These are good but the rest of my shopping is getting done online.
