Pineapple Cupcakes

Hmm, what to do with two cans of chopped pineapple that's been sitting in my pantry for what seems like years? Eid-ul-fitr is over so no need for pineapple tarts. Something quick and easy to put together because the kids have to be picked up from school soon. A quick search on the web and i found a recipe for these pineapple cupcakes.
I'm really annoyed that i didn't bookmark the site or make note of it. I just quickly jotted down the recipe and ran to the kitchen to make them.

Recipe for Pineapple Cupcakes
2 Cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 can (8oz) crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup raisins

Whisk oil, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the sugar, pineapple, and raisins. Fold in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Pour into cupcake cases and bake until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a cupcake comes out clean.

I burnt my tongue eating these too soon out of the oven....but worth it! These were so yummy! Its a lot of batter and we had cupcakes for days :)

I loads away to family and it seems everyone liked them just as much as i did. I didn't make and icing/frosting for these and they were yummy and full of flavour as they were.

So if you're ever wondering what to make with canned pineapples.......make these!
