good day to bake muffins

When the day looks like this...gray skies, cold, and rain mixed with snow, especially in mid-April...

And you just got out of your warm, comfy bed...

 And even the pussy cats are still sleeping...

Then, it's a great morning to make Pina Colada muffins!

1-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. rum extract
1 c. crushed pineapple, well drained
1/2 c. flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt; set aside. Cream together butter, sugar, egg, sour cream & rum extract. Add flour mixture & stir just until flour disappears. Fold in pineapple & coconut. Spoon into-paper-lined muffin tin. Sprinkle with additional coconut & sugar if desired. Bake for 20-25 min. Makes 12.
