(Video of the preparation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9pYjfKbapE&feature=youtu.be)

Look for the flour and is not for the pannenkoeken because we will prepare an irresistible dessert with authentic pineapple from Costa Rica, the sweetest and most intense taste!

 

Ingredients:

 

1 pineapple from Costa Rica

210g of flour

8g of yeast / baking powder 

1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate

3 eggs

170g of sugar

¼ teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of vanilla

3 slices of pineapple diced

80ml of milk

170ml of sunflower oil

40g pieces of chocolate for the filling

Sugar to sprinkle

Chocolate chips for coverage

 

Preparation

 

First of all, peel the pineapple (make sure it is ripe and from Costa Rica, which is sweeter and with much intensity of flavor), when it is peeled cut 3 slices of 1 centimeter thick, then chop it into 1 x 1 centimeter cubes approximately (remember that the heart of pineapple should be removed, because it is woody and hard and due to its concentration of Bromelain can crack your tongue.)

 

In a bowl, mix the flour, the baking powder and the sodium bicarbonate.

 

Then you put the eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla in a bowl, beat everything very well until it turns creamy and pale, then add the pineapple and mix again.

 

Then while continuing to beat, add the milk and the sunflower oil little by little.

 

When all the oil has been incorporated well, gradually add the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips and mix them avoiding beating too much. Until a thick homogeneous cream remains.

 

Cover the bowl with film and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. (This is important for the muffins to grow quite large.)

 

Then fill the capsules, with cupcake paper, a little more than ¾ parts, being careful not to spill.

 

Above you sprinkle a little sugar and then 3 chocolate chips (the normal thing is that they go down in the cooking, if you put them with flour, will stay higher). If you want to see the chocolate chips on the muffins, you must immediately place them when taking the muffins out of the oven and return the mold to the oven just for a few seconds, then take it out and let cool, as directed below.

 

Take the mold to the oven preheated to 190°C and cook for 15 minutes.

 

Take them out of the mold being careful not to burn yourself and put them on a grid to cool completely and enjoy them with a good Costa Rican coffee, the best of the world!
