Hummingbird Muffins

Hummingbird Muffins ~ Perfect breakfast or as a lunchbox treat ! One won't be enough - these are moist, fruit packed and totally delicious ! #Muffins #Hummingbird www.WithABlast.net

I have never had Hummingbird Muffins or Cake before, but have seen recipes for these flying around the internet quite often. On closer look at the ingredients I immediately knew we would love it.

It is such a fruity treat, Banana, Cherries and then one of my all time favorite fruits ..Pineapple ! And did I, and the rest of the family, fall hard for these Hummingbird Muffins ;-)

The recipe yielded 18 large muffins and we had some leftover which I kept in a sealed container. They were just fine the next day - if not better, which is kind of unusual for a muffin, as they tend to dry out quite soon.

It takes literally minutes to prepare and by the time the oven was ready, I was done, and the few dishes I had, were washed already.

These Hummingbird Muffins are perfect for a jump start to your morning and I think especially great to add to the kids lunch boxes {or your own if you're working}. Me, I love them as a mid morning snack with a cup of tea.

I might have had a late start by making a Hummingbird anything, but I am most certainly catching up - I made these Muffins 3 times already and now keep all the ingredients on hand for just in case ! Next on the list ... definitely a Hummingbird Cake.

HUMMINGBIRD MUFFINS

18 Large Muffins

INGREDIENTS:

1 box Vanilla or Yellow Cake Mix
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil {I use Sunflower Oil}
1 can (410g) Crushed Pineapple, drained but retain juice
3 Eggs
1 t Ground Cinnamon
1 Ripe Banana, chopped
3/4 cup Walnuts, chopped, divided
1/2 cup Maraschino Cherries, well drained, divided

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray 2 muffin pans (18 holes) with cooking oil.
2.) In a large bowl mix the Cake Mix, Oil, Pineapple, Eggs and Cinnamon - add enough Water to the retained Pineapple Juice to make 1/2 cup - add to the bowl - mix until well combined.
3.) Stir in the Banana, half the Walnuts and half the Cherries - spoon into the prepared muffin pans.
4.) Sprinkle the remaining Walnuts and Cherries over the batter - bake 22 - 25 minutes or until a tester comes out clean - let cool in pans for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a cooling rack and serve slightly warm or cold.
