  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple drained very well
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a muffin pan with 12 regular size cups by greasing them with non-stick cooking spray or use paper or silicone muffin/cupcake liners.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, sour cream, and rum extract.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture, just until combined. Fold in the pineapple and coconut.
  • Fill the 12 cups of the prepared muffin pan cups with the muffin batter, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
  • Bake the muffins at 375°F for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the muffins in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
