Pineapple Orange Muffin Bread

It is a slow Saturday. Despite the very nice weather, I wasn`t able to go out. I am really feeling lethargic. So I spent the whole afternoon doing the laundry, thinking what to cook, what to do with my paper and watching the old Willy Wonka musical, in that order.

I checked what`s in my stock and just searched on the internet using the ingredients. I have pineapple and all ingredients for a cake plus orange marmalade so here it is, I got this recipe from Fruittart.

  • 1 can crushed pineapple (I used about 5 pineapple rings and crushed it for 2 secs using blender)
  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 3 tbsp melted butter or margarine (I used 3 tbsp salad oil)
  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts (I used almonds)
  • 2 t grated orange peel (I used 2 tsp orange marmalade)


Drain pineapple.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, beat egg, add milk, melted butter, pineapple, orange peel and nuts.
Mix the liquid mixture into the dry mixture. Bake at 400F for 15 to 20 mins. Serve warm.

I didn`t drain the pineapple. I figured a bit of juice won`t hurt. And it didn`t. One thing I regret though is not adding more pineapple and more orange marmalade. But it turned out well. I put some glaze on it too immediately after the oven buzzed. The glaze was just 2-3 tbsp of pineapple juice and brown sugar.

I called it bread coz I still don`t have muffin molders. I`m afraid there won`t be anything left for tomorrow`s breakfast. Rad loves it!
