Make Ahead Pineapple Muffin Recipe

This pineapple muffin recipe will have you jumping out of bed!

I love the smell and taste of a warm muffin right out of the oven.  But the last thing I want to do in the morning is cook anything that requires too much effort.

By planning the night before, I’ve found I can have freshly baked muffins with minimal effort.

How to make muffins ahead:

  • Start by combining all the dry ingredients {flour, baking powder, sugar, salt} in a large bowl. Leave out on the counter.
  • In a measuring cup, measure the milk, then add the eggs and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate.
  • In the morning, start by preheating the oven.
  • Stir together the dry and wet ingredients. Mix in the remaining ingredients and get ready to bake.

Muffin ingredients prepared the night before baking.

This is the recipe I follow to make Pineapple Muffins that can be prepped the night before.
