Pineapple Muffins

My kiddos love it when I make the 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins, so they always request them.  The other day, Smith requested them (again), but since it’s almost May, I just wasn’t feeling the pumpkin, so I substituted with crushed pineapple and thus…the perfect spring and summer muffin was born.  And it only has two ingredients.  Two.
Perfect for busy ladies.
One box of yellow cake mix and one (15 oz) can of crushed pineapple is all you need.  Enjoy!
This recipe should make about 18 muffins.

Shopping List
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 (15 oz) can of crushed pineapple (do not drain).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put paper cupcake liners in two 12-count muffin tins.
In a mixing bowl, combine with an electric mixer your two ingredients.  Pour batter into each muffin liner (filling 3/4 of the way full).  You will probably yield 18 cupcakes.
Bake about 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and either serve warm or room temp.
My kiddos enjoyed a muffin after school one day and in their lunches the next.  I enjoyed mine with coffee.  Two ingredients, one happy family.

    These look soooo yummy! I make a recipe similar as a cake but has more ingredients, so I am all about the easiness of these! The cake I make has mandarin oranges in it too šŸ™‚ Have a great day!

    I have a cake recipe for a "Mexican Wedding Cake" that has crushed pineapple in it with a cream cheese frosting. So if you ever wanted to turn these into cupcakes, I'm sure a cream cheese frosting would be delicious! Thanks for the new recipe. These look super easy and yummy!

    This may be a silly question… But do you include eggs, oil and water as cake box instructs or is it simply "cake mix" and pineapples? Thx ā¤ļø

    You are a genius!

    These are so good! So simple but so flavorful and light and fluffy. To me they're more of a cupcake than a muffin, so maybe next time I will make some cream cheese frosting to go on top, yum! Or even some cool whip! Thanks as always, Shay!

    I whipped these up tonight. Super simple, quick and tasty. Have you ever made them with other canned fruits? I have a can of diced mangos in the pantry and wondering how those would bake up. Thanks!!
