I entered these muffins at our county fair and won the grand champion award for baked goods. They're so moist, they don't need butter. —Sylvia Osborn, Clay Center, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 minutes.
Bake: 25 minutes.
YIELD: 12 servings
1/4 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, sour cream and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in the pineapple, coconut, and pecans.
2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
