I love the concept of this muffin! In fact, I assumed the pineapple was in the batter until I read the reviews. Making this even better, I had fresh ripe, sweet pineapple. I put it in my food processor and then squeezed it out using 2 coffee filters and that worked better than the collander. I used 1 packed cup of pineapple. I added to the batter: 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. rum extract, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. This made 6 Texas-size muffins baked at 37 minutes. *careful though, these really poof up, so next time I will use less batter and make 7 giant size muffins. This would also be great with a few marichino cherries chopped with the pineapple, almost like an upside downcake concept. The streusel topping is great. I didn't have enough butter for both topping and batter, so used oil in the batter. They were not dry at all. They look oh so gourmet. I also didn't melt the margarine for the streusel, just cut it in with a pastry blender. These really have a bakery look.
