  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice (reserved from crushed pineapple)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:
  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare 2 muffin pans with baking cups.
  • 2 In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Remove 2 tablespoons juice from crushed pineapple and set aside for buttercream.
  • 3 In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • 4 Gradually add flour mixture alternately with sour cream and milk; beat until just combined. Add crushed pineapple; mix until incorporated.
  • 5 Scoop batter evenly into prepared muffin pans. Bake 18-21 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven, cool in pan on cooling grid 5 minutes; remove and cool completely before frosting.
